The animation is absolutely charming, and Clannad's beautiful musical score brings the story of love and courage to life. As soon as the opening bars of 'Dream in the Night' start to play, I start crying! It's like being instantly transported back twenty years to a happier and more innocent time. What a pity nobody makes films like this anymore - highly recommended for adults and children alike!
The soundtrack by Clannad is a lovely accompaniment.
