A 30-minute animated short, <em>The man who planted trees</em> is a powerful story delivered simply, but effectively. Even if fictitious, it is quite an inspirational and heart-warming tale.

Well worth watching even if the animation might seem underwhelming. The narration by Christopher Plummer (in the English dub) is also a plus.

A weak plot, dull direction and good acting make this this French movie a real mixed bag. However, it is about music and classical music at that and I can overlook even Godzilla-sized issues for its sake. It is also a comedy and there are some moments of note. But all the whole, it really isn't all that funny.

Don't expect much out of this one and just enjoy it for the music.

Nodame Cantabile - Paris Hen

I've been a huge fan of Nodame Cantabile ever since it was released. I've watched the live-action series, read the manga and also watched series one of the anime. This review deals with the anime sequel, dubbed "Nodame Cantabile: Paris Hen", which deals with Nodame and Chiaki's stay in Paris.

You should probably not be reading further if you are yet to see the first series.
