A poor job of world-building undermines this French-Spanish animated effort...

Audience Reviews for Nocturna

Okay, I really loved this, and I don't say that often. This had a great storyline, great art, and even I jumped out of my seat at a few parts. I cried, I laughed, I gasped. All in one movie. It's an extremely underrated and great gem in animation history.

Though the animation well done, the storytelling is a bit too simple and straightforward to fully recommend.

I recently saw the highly anticipated Ghibli hit, "The Wind Rises" and was surprisingly underwhelmed by it. Although it had flashes of amazing animation it bogged down frequently and became very talky. While surfing Netflix I came across "Nocturna and not only did the story hold together better but I am sorry, the animation blew Ghibli away. Loved this hidden gem and wonder why it did not get more attention. See it by all means! Ken K.
