The animation in the movie was very good but the plot not so much. It had it's moments but not many of them. Not as emotional as it sounds. It is sad but just seems different. The movie is about a man named Willy who's mom just died and he grew up in a naturists community which if you're wondering yes nobody wears clothes. Anyway, the movie shows him mourn his mother's death then basically decides to live in the woods. In the movie, Willy meets a Bigfoot creature and that's pretty much it. Now the ending is sort of heartwarming but throughout the movie there is a question, why? Why does Willy do the things he does? It makes a good point to some extent though and you can see that his mother and him were close and he doesn't take her death well. So not well, that he moves in the woods. It's really not that the plot was too bad it just wasn't shown right in the movie. If that makes sense. There was something about the movie that didn't make it enjoyable.
The animation was once again sweet and great but the plot was a little awkward. Strange little animated movie that doesn't quite make it a memorable film. It just seems that there is something missing in this movie. Though watch it because you may like it and find it charming, this reviewer just couldn't get into it. The rating that this movie is getting a 2.5 star.
