    Andra explores Italy ep 2

    Il Gattopardo is both a beautiful ode to Sicily and a merciless critique of it. Just like Sicily its story is harsh and delicate, showing love and war, familial affects and political differences, aspects that are never portrayed as mutually exclusive, but instead complement each other, giving life to a complex set of relationships and situations, embodying the nature of the country itself.

    The plot is derivative to an extent I couldn’t even imagine was possible, it takes a lot from The Road to El Dorado, Kung Fu Panda, Mulan, Pirates of the Caribbean, The last airbender, Moana and there’s probably something I forgot.

    The animation is really good, can’t deny that, the water seemed real, but I found it to be almost annoying, there’s difference…
