The film ends on a note of graceful, heartbreaking beauty that Tati would have admired for its lack of sentimentality. A lot of what precedes that ending, though, is precious and slight and a little too fanciful.
It's beautifully drawn -- really drawn, with hardly any computer effects -- and has an elegiac tone and bits of quirky humor. But it wouldn't win a footrace with a snail, and the narrative amounts to nothing.
