Audience Reviews for Unico (The Fantastic Adventures of Unico)

A beautifully mature, yet accessible to all forgotten animated gem. Unico is a unicorn who has the ability to make anyone he meets happy. This would be all well and good, but the jealous gods believe only they should hold such a power, and so they order Unico to be banished by the West Wind. Taking pity, the west wind hides Unico, but each time Unico helps someone, the gods are alerted to his presence. The film is all about helping others and not only getting what you can from friendship. Like David Banner is the Hulk TV show, Unico can never stick around for long, leaving each story with a sad ending. Unico offers up no easy answers and explores very dark avenues which you might not expect from such a cute little unicorn. There's nothing overly sweet or condescending about this film, just a great sense of honesty and amazing animation. May upset many viewers with its brutal depiction of life and having to move on, but it leaves happy and unforgettable memories, much like the character itself.
