We are always trying to find ways if celebrating other cultures in our home. This was a perfect movie for that. The two leads, a boy and girl whose names I won't try to spell, learn how to work together to ultimately save their village. The boy protagonist is featured a bit more than the girl but it wasn't quite as lopsided as movies have been in the past. It is beautifully animated with the designs lending an immediate Andean atmospheric to the film. My almost 7 year old was glued to the screen and he had several giggle moments throughout. I loved the environmental message delivered as well. So much build from one viewing - history, environmental, values and it was quite entertaining as well.
