"the little prince"
luke's rating: 6.5 of 10

the little prince is eye candy with some heart. a little girl has been raised on a life plan, where everything has been planned in advance by her calculated, but well meaning mother. her methodically mapped out summer is thrown for a loop however when she meets her oddball neighbor the aviator. here she learns to be a kid again by the stories he tells. the animation is so satisfying to watch, as framing was the most important to the directors. the symmetry, asymmetry, minimalism, and other techniques used were done so perfectly. i also enjoyed that the story of the girl was done with regular cgi, while the story of the prince was done in stop-motion. unfortunately i think this film actually dragged a little. i was ready for it to start wrapping up after about an hour and twenty minutes, only to find out that there were still forty more minutes to it. so while the visual storytelling was superb, the actual story was oversaturated.
