The Magician's Elephant

A young orphan "Peter" has been brought up by a disciplinarian former-soldier, but longs to find his long-lost sister from whom he was parted at the height of war. Out for the daily shopping (stale bread and fish), he espies a tent in which a fortune teller offers to tell his future. It seems that he might be reconciled with his sibling - but for that he has to follow the elephant, and there hasn't been one in his town for an age. Meantime, a rather hapless magician is trying to entertain the great and the good in the town's theatre when - low and behold - he conjures up... The king arrives in the town to inspect this magically contrived and noisy pachyderm and decrees that if "Peter" can carry out three impossible tasks, he can keep it! The three impossible tasks are quite entertaining, as is the whole film. The story is all a little predictable and it does stray into sentimentality just a bit too often, but it's an engaging family drama with some fun characters and colourful scenarios. Maybe a bit too wordy and probably fifteen minutes too long - it takes an age to get going - it is still a gently entertaining watch that imbues the lead character with some imagination and legerdemain and one that I quite enjoyed on a big screen.

Netflix has done it again.

There is no doubt that Noah Jupe is one of the most talented young actors of Generation Z.

One of the things that makes him so talented is his 68 generation despite being born in 2005 and his flawless British accent that we don't hear very often.

The young actor is extremely proficient in the language.

With Klaus, I Lost My Body and Guillermo Del Toro's Pinocchio, Netflix, which has gained a great momentum in the world of animation both in terms of awards and audience reaction, seems to not compromise on this attitude in the coming years.

Although most of the human characters are quite standard, our thick-skinned husband is so naive, The story that starts with a very deep pain, leaves not so sharp twists to many beautiful but small stories, A king who loves to laugh and is portrayed as a buffoon rules a country that has forgotten to laugh, and Many nice details, such as all the wise words coming out of this character, the failure of a devoted magician, but the fact that his real success is this incompetence, are handled well in the movie.

A beautiful movie that can teach us so much

This animated feature is absolutely stunning in terms of animation. I could see myself getting lost in this highly detailed world. With its beautiful animation and timeless themes of hope, this animated feature deserves all the love it is getting. There is a lot we can learn from Peter. Moreover, I love the subtle humor in this movie. The timing on the jokes are all great, showing that this movie is one that can be enjoyed by the whole family and not only young children. Though this movie is sure to captivate any kid, it even captivates those who may find heartfelt movies irritating. Relax, get some popcorn, and watch this movie. You will not regret it.
