An absolutely adorable and quite splendid Hungarian animation. Egon is an inventor who lives on a planet alone with his cat Donci. One day they receive a message from Earth and decide to travel their by building their own spaceship. It's very much like Wallace & Gromit on the surface, but is very different in tone and execution. There is no spoken language throughout the film, which helps to make it a multinational experience. As the film is aimed at youngsters but contains an important message about the world's pollution, it does well to reach for that large audience. Egon & Dolci make quite the pairing, and are often cute and funny. The visuals are magnificent, especially when travelling through space, and the music takes on a different beat and sounds a lot like Roni Size, which isn't something you get in your usual animation. What I like best is its determination to find a distinct voice. It may be low budget, but it doesn't try and emulate the work of Pixar, Disney, or Dreamworks. Fresh and sweet, I will certainly be watching this again.
