Impressions In Short
I enjoyed the story, particularly the cat and the flying dogs *grin*

More About the Film
It’s a fairytale and it was very cute and funny and I had fun and that’s all I have to say lol
I mean I guess I can add that I got very sentimental about the cat (a shame I don’t have one anymore *sigh*) - it was great and the flying dogs were totally hilarious, especially during the credits. The buttons for eyes theme is very creepy and the story is very engaging. The one strange thing was that I got the feeling it should have been happening somewhere in England and not in the US and then Kin told me later that indeed the novel did take place in the UK ;)
You know, it’s bizarre how pretty much every time I watch an animated film I have nothing to say about it :] Part of the reason I procrastinated with this review was that I had no idea what to write *sigh*

Er… *hesitates* yes?
