Enge (All reviews)
One of my childhood favorites!! I wrote down that I watched it 20 times, but truthfully I probably watched it many more times than that ^.^

While not entirely faithful, the main plot doesn't deviate much from the original Swan Lake story. However, the wonderful character development, the way the mood seamlessly slips from light-hearted comedy to heartfelt romance (and everything in between), and even the little quirky characters like that squirrell that chewed through a bunch of wooden handles make this movie one of the most memorable I've ever seen.

Since the movie was made in 1981, the art is a bit antiquated, but I chalk this movie up there with classics like Spirited Away and Kiki's Delivery Service ^.^
