"perhaps one of my favorite Anderson movie
the animation is amazing. perhaps not to those who is used to the typical hollywood 3d effects audience. detail in the set (architecture) and landscape is fantastic so do all the characters. the combination of western cartoon and elements of japanese comic in characters are witty and funny.
since I have not read the original children's book, there was no reference to the story line when watching, the movie felt like a typical Anderson story, about family, fatherhood, society, values of life and many more that is only to be able to understood by adults, and can be interpreted differently. As the angel changed from human to fox, it became more playful and also brought up some of the other issues which perhaps would not be easy to portrait or present in the human world context, such as towards the end, the scene the wolf appears.
i think it is a masterpiece of animation and also for Wes Anderson, and as a combination of these two it worked out perfectly."
