About the film
“Orion and the Dark” is a movie that blurs the lines between reality, fiction, and imagination. A production by Dreamworks that immerses its young viewers into a world similar to “Inception” (2010), but from a different perspective. However, thanks to a superb script, the film becomes a heartwarming tale, full of tenderness but also delving into deep themes in a respectful and non-frivolous manner.
A film that knows how to play with magic and fantasy at all times. It has a lot of comedy, but it’s not the kind of hilarious or over-the-top comedy that provokes laughter. The film uses smiles as a guide in this story that delves into dreams and nightmares, but without causing fear or extreme emotions.
“Orion and the Dark” is an excellent animated film in every sense, perfect in its production and conception, and without ever being boring, it manages to deliver its message in a simple way in the plot, slow in its development, and explanatory and kind in its story.
Charming supporting characters, attractive protagonist.
A story that unfolds in flashbacks and is endearing from the very beginning.
A delightful animated film.
