I heard about this movie from my cousin, and how much she loved it. Since she also liked Twilight so much, I was thinking it was just another cheezy disney teenager romance movie. Nevertheless I gave it a shot. Quite to my surprise, this animation captured my attention from the get go.
From just the outside, the story seems somewhat parallel to the snow white classic movie, where the princess is trapped in a tower by an old evil lady, and then the prince comes with a white horse. I guess that similarity is intentional.
What really got me was the psychology behind the old lady, and the true feelings from the girl (the main character). It’s so real that every little thing in the movie makes perfect sense…
Sorry for being vague, but I really hope you will take time to watch this movie. I highly recommend this to all my friends. It is definitely worth your time!
