Dove Review

This film is an enchantment for the senses featuring dazzling animation and a sweet love story. Action abounds as a timid shoemaker falls for the daughter of the king. We meet a bumbling thief, an evil wizard and a cadre of hulking bad guys who round out the cast of characters. Three golden balls that protect the city come up missing, causing havoc and impending disaster for all those who dwell within.

Courage, love and suspense are featured as we follow the adventures of Tack the Shoemaker, Princess Yum Yum, and Zig Zag the Wizard on a wonderful journey of delight! We found this film to be a delightful story that will be enjoyed by the entire family and are happy to approve for all ages.
