I don`t know why you didn`t like it but to me it was a good movie, one of the best animated so far. And i seen a lot. It hasn`t a common story and the character are reale quite well made... But that`s the way i see it...

Although it was released for a while now, I didn't see the movie yet. But I'll try to find a DVD to watch it this week-end :)

I really like the cover of "Powers" enough that it speaks to me: Buy me.

Barbara, I understand that feeling, it happens to me very often :)
However, for Ursula K. Le Guin's works, I buy them despite their covers ;)
