Staff Review

Now I must apologies to Prisac as I do not understand the German however they are very right to think that I'd like the pictures. Pitiphants has some amazingly huge sets. A size I rarely see in a brickfilm and the sets are off extremely high quality. Even if you don't understand German you should see this film due to it's huge sets. Maybe it could inspire you to think big. Another thing which made this film a pleasure to watch was the big and very clear image it welcomes you into the film. For an English speaking person I did not understand most of the narration however the strong visual design in the white expanse part of the film almost translates some of the words and it's easy to pick out the names of the continents. Another thing which may awe you is the size of the directors Lego collection. The scene at the end with the procession of Elephants(only hurt by the repeated footage) has a brilliantly large set filled with hundreds of minifigs and loads of lovely elephants I was wanting to see more of the sets and the elephants but sadly it does feel a little short but from what there is here there is definitely some visual treats for you.
