An animated film of great gentleness in both soundtrack and interpretation. A fable set in ancient Crete, freely inspired and revisited, where several Greek mythologies intertwine in this sublime visual with the touching story of Icarus and Asterion. You're totally immersed in the stakes of the characters and in total empathy with the boy and his friend, who are extremely touching as they learn about life and refuse to be betrayed. The dialogues are real poetic jewels, as moving and luminous as if you were at the opera. When you finish this magical work, you come away completely moved, with its many references, hidden away like Easter eggs, whether architectural or psychological, this masterpiece is a symbol.
The final scene is one of infinite beauty that pierces your soul and brings tears to your eyes, and I'm surprised I've never heard of it because it's clearly worth watching
