This film (魔女っこ姉妹のヨヨとネネ) was directed by Takayuki Hirao (平尾 隆之), and produced by ufotable (this pushed the film quite high up on our ‘to-watch’ list).
At the centre of our story are our two sisters, Yoyo and Nene, who undo curses for a living. One day, their world (the Magical Kingdom) is invaded by a tree with buildings from the non-magical human world. Yoyo gets stuck in the non-magical world and she and her sister have to find a way to undo this curse and get her back home before it’s too late. I liked it because I found the story to have depth and it’s moving; and I thought it was a short but well-packed film, with beautiful animation and music. What about you?
I really enjoyed the film as well. One of the things that struck me from the beginning were the vivid and colourful visuals. I also really enjoyed seeing all the layers of the story unfold; specifically, how characters that weren’t actually around anymore had an impact on the current events. I just wish we could have seen just a tad bit more of Nene as well.
I really wish Yoyo could’ve remained tall even when she returned home. I love this film because as short as it is, there is a powerful message behind it – even non-magic beings can do magic and it doesn’t have to be using an incantation or a wand. Such magic can be created out of love, kindness and compassion.
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww ^^. I love the way you phrased that and I agree. Now that you’ve said the above I’m thinking we stumbled on a really good Christmas film :D.
As usual, we shall leave you with the trailer for this little treasure. Enjoy and as always, thanks for stopping by!
