Director: Bruno Bozzetto
Rated: PG (For mild nudity)
When Walt Disney’s “Fantasia” was unleashed on the world it was unlike anything the world had seen. An animated musical that put images to classical music was a novelty idea, one that was sure to be a target for parody years to come. Probably the best parody of the film came from Italy, in “Allegro Non Troppo,” a movie that, like “Fantasia,” has images put up to classical music. The difference is that this movie is supposed to be more funny then artistic. When the movie begins with see the director bragging how this is going to be one of the greatest cinematic experiences of your life. To insure this he hunted down the best animator (whose been locked in a cell for five years), an important conductor (or so he thinks), and many pretty musicians (a bunch of old women who complain that they would rather be somewhere else).
Parents, there is little language and almost no violence. That said there is some (non-graphic) animated nudity. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
