Interestingly, there is no comprehensible dialogue in the entire movie. In that, it is somewhat akin to Wall-E or, perhaps, a Cirque du Solei show. It is a Hungarian movie, so I assume the goal was to make a movie that could be enjoyed by people who do not speak Hungarian.
The plot is interesting. A farmer and his very fat cat find some NASA wreckage and the farmer, who likes to tinker in a home-made observatory, quickly throws together a space ship and sets off to find the place where the wreckage came from. Turns out, the man and his cat are aliens (so, strictly speaking, they are neither a human, nor a cat).
I do not want to say too much about it, but I was swept away by the visuals, and the soundtrack was also very well done. I was particularly impressed with the farmer and his cat flying through our solar system checking each planet to see which one was the right one -- I think I actually learned a bit about the planets. Overall, this movie was a great surprise, fully of charm and whimsy. It also had an unmistakable foreign feeling, like Spirited Away or Les Triplettes de Belleville, or even Wallace and Grommit.
I think this movie is good for kids of any age, and adults, too. To be clear, this is a review of the movie, not the DVD itself.
I will buy it for birthday gifts for everyone I know, child and adult, until they all have a copy.
It's often described as a childish tale, and that's accurate, but I love the beautiful graphics tied in with the fantastic music. It's more of a instrumental journey of a person viewing the earth long after humans have left and how he travels to get here, what happens when he gets here and it does turn a bit eerie, at least to adults, children will appreciate the graphics but the tale does turn dark.
I truly appreciate a movie that can be viewed by children for the fun and adults for something more deep and enjoyed by all.
