Movie Info

Something of a Fantasia for adults, Allegro Non Troppo intercuts slapstick live-action sequences -- which relay the story of a beleaguered animator's (Maurizio Nichetti) ongoing battle with an Oliver Hardy-like orchestra conductor -- and animated sequences, set to classical music, which visually interpret selected works of Debussy, Dvorak, Ravel, Sibelius, Vivaldi, and Stravinsky. The liveliest piece, set to Ravel's Bolero, delineates a series of "spontaneous generations" from an abandoned Coke

Overall very amiable, quirky fun.

It's not only a hilarious send-up of Disney's excesses but a splendid cartoon feature in its own right -- funny and imaginative and lively.

Bozzetto's satire serves both Darwin and Genesis.

Generally humorous, quite colorful, and at least somewhat thought provoking.

Director Bozzetto's style is frantic in pace and occasionally violent, but his use of color and line is dazzling.

A reminder of a time not that long ago when movies seemed fresher, braver and just generally more exciting than they are now.

every bit is weird, experimental, and vaguely inappropriate as you would expect.

Fun, but chintzy-looking compared to Fantasia, which it claims to spoof.

Fantasia with a sense of irony.

Brilliant Italian parody of "Fantasia."

The animated pieces are uniformly terrific, some touching, most hilarious and more than a few expressing Bozzetto's trademark anti-war sentiments.

Audience Reviews for Allegro Non Troppo

A series of cartoons animated to classical music pieces. It never reaches the grandiose heights of FANTASIA (the filmmakers are well aware of that fact), but the scribblings here are at the same time more adult (there's a good deal of cartoon nudity) and overall more whimsical than Disney's sometimes self-important commissions.

I love this movie, it's a beautiful animated music filled film much like Fantasia, but with some humorous interludes in between. It's so full of life and comedy, I love it.

It's a good parody of Fantasia and also a pretty good stand-alone movie in itself. Some passages were hilarious, some were sad, some were unBEARably sad, and the animation is always diverse and top-notch. I was very rarely bored while watching this. But I think the Italians are sometimes a bit too sadistic for my taste. The music was well-played and everything too.
