THE GIANT PEAR * (Theatrical Release Denmark 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The Giant Pear
uniquely defines itself by its sweet characterization and completely non-threatening animation which mark this children’s film with innocent charm. This refreshing child/adult share departs from typical Hollywood fare of brash, loud, and brassy to the gentler mood of Hollywood’s earlier years. Even though the giant pear concept is a little illogical, the movie is great for children and worth at least one viewing.
