The animation style
is more Hergé than Ghibli, even though the latter is the studio producing.
Nevertheless, it's beautiful, and the story is sometimes gripping. The complete
lack of dialogue poses a challenge to the animators, but moreso to the audience.
Neither the story, nor the character development warrants a feature length
film, though; as a short, The Red turtle would have been very strong, methinks.

Aurore is growing
up. Her behaviour is erratic, as one might expect from a middle child coping
with teen angst, stuck between her socially stable big sister and her at school
well-performing little sister. Léna Magnien, the leading actress, covers all the
feels and does so excellently. It's never boring, but neither is it all that
gripping. A simple story about growing up, that's all.
