Denmark / Norway 2004, 88 minutes
Dir. Anders R√łnnow Klarlund
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Family / Fantasy

Topics: Puppetry.


Aroview: An extraordinary Danish puppet fantasy epic about the course of kingdoms and warriors in an ancient world, which is distinguished by the integration of the puppet strings into the action as a vital complicating element and an original metaphor for cosmic fate.

The story concerns Hal, a prince of the kingdom of Helabon, who must journey to the Lake of a Thousand Dead Warriors to gain the powers necessary to defeat the falsely maligned Zeriths. Voiced by the cream of British acting talent, this suffers a little from the lack of expressiveness to the puppets' faces, but even so, it is intricately fascinating, delicate and atmospheric.
