Review: The most striking image in this poster and is a running visual element in the trailer is the two Eiffel Towers. This looks to be a fantastic world where things don’t quite mirror real life, but what kind of extraordinary world would it be if it did?

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: The lack of subtitles was tough, the images gave an idea of the story, but not a sufficient one. The animation isn’t that spectacular, but it’s good enough to support the story. With subtitles, it might be more appealing.

Oscar Prospects:

GKids has picked up this film, which means its Oscar chances have increased dramatically. There will be some stiff competition this year, but I wouldn’t count it out.
