Azur and Asmar
Visual splendor abounds in Azur and Asmar; The Prince's Quest.
Pretty acerbic review here.
The final sentences of of the review are illuminating:
"Only a special sort of parent would take their kid to see Azur and Asmar: the type that taught them how to read before their first day of kindergarten. They should have let it play the States as a “foreign” film."
I think this is true. Lack of story and cheesy dialogue notwithstanding, this is seriously wonderful eye candy, worth a look.
