5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, only a little short, 26 Oct. 2012

This review is from: La Planete Sauvage [Masters of Cinema] (Dual Format Edition) [Blu-ray] [1973] (Blu-ray)
This film is an impressive reminder of how captivating and beautifully natural sketch animations are. I was impressed from start to finish. Having an eye for art i could really appreciate the sheer effort and planning of the entire art form.

The plot development is lacking somewhat, the main character's childhood is over extensive, and alot of 'mini' scenes in which humans (or 'Oms') are repeatedly portrayed as pets by the aliens could have been reduced or removed entirely. The time consumption of these scenes seem to cut short the plot and critical scenes, leaving a rushed second half and leaving alot of the grey areas to the imagination.
The ending, of which i wont divulge for fear of spoiling this great film for anyone, is regrettably short and wraps up too quickly, and left me puzzled and somewhat dissapointed. The finale is a scene of massive impact, but is not explained thoroughly.

Imaginative, humerous, dark and yet lighthearted in many respects, the film provides alot of diversity for viewers. The alien landscape is especially interesting and the ideas for the creatures, plants and way of life are nothing short of amazing.

The soundtrack really adds the required effect to eccentuate and add depth to alot of the film. The music has a strong 70's vibe to it, though this doesnt hinder viewing or ruin the atmos.

I havent watched all the extras but they include some short films, i watched one and it was amusing, and retains the art style.

Overall id say this is an amazing product of high creativity and imagination, method and skill. It is unique in most aspects.
I wouldnt recommend it for kids below the age of eight as there moderately disturbing culling scenes and a fairly complicated infrastructure.
