I know this isn't a parenting blog... you'd be ill advised to take parenting advice from a woman who refers to her young children as punks. And it's even less a movie blog. But I adore this film...
Azur e Asmar... an animated film by Michel Ocelot, is simply stunning. Sounds, visions, and simplicity. The colors are intensely beautiful. The language is smooth and sophisticated. The story slowly unravels... in contrast to Pixar, this film is a meditation. For your kids.
A story of two boys nursed by the same woman. Brothers in their hearts. Her gentle chats nurturing their dreams of becoming heros.
Did I mention that the colors take my breath away. It's such a beautiful film.
