"The Princes' Quest"


I watched a most beautiful film this weekend with my girls "The Princes' Quest" 
Maybe I'm just late to the party but I hadn't heard of this gem of a movie.  The story is an original fairy tale with Middle Eastern flair. The imagery is breathtakingly beautiful, with painted cut outs and jewel like scenery. I believe its computer animated but the look is hand crafted (you can see the brush strokes)  I hope you get a chance to see it!

I bet you would love http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_Prince_Achmed
also. It is another classic Middle Eastern tale, illustrated with paper cuts and shadow puppets. It is breathtaking.
