Wonderfully Animated But Somehow Indecisive Adventure Movie
Read the full review on my blog max4movies: Der Mondmann (2012) (international title: Moon Man) is based on the traditional children's story of the Moon Man visiting Earth and his misadventures to travel back to the moon. Although the movie is mainly targeted at a younger audience, more mature viewers will notice the many references in the movie and how it sensibly deals with topics like friendship, trust, and commitment. Production-wise the movie is made very competently with beautiful backgrounds, vibrant colors, and sharp contrasts. However, sometimes the pacing feels off and the movie features few elements that seem out of place in a typical children's movie (e.g., the romantic scene). Thus, the movie is generally entertaining, highly imaginative, and beautiful to look at - but could also use a slightly better focus.
