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

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