Mia et le Migou (Mia and the Migoo) Reviews

June 15, 2011
So heavy-handed that only the youngest audiences won't feel talked down to. Instead, they're likely to be freaked out.

The toke-tastic visuals are an endless delight, especially the Migoo themselves, who look like the offspring of McDonald's Grimace and Calvin and Hobbes' killer monster snow goons.

Shares a spiritual link to the Japanese works of Hayao Miyazaki but lacks his films' narrative drive and magical overlay.

Trying to parse meaning in "Mia" is secondary to its main point, which is its look, created with 500,000 hand-drawn frames.

Mia and the Migoo boasts a handsome, folkloric look that is often undermined by a ham-handed script.
