Mister Blot’s Academy 1984
Akademia pana Kleksa (original title)
2h 46min | Family, Fantasy | 30 January 1984 (Poland)
Ten-year-old Adas, beginning his education at the Academy, finds the hideout of Bird Matt, who used to be a prince. Touched by his fate, he promises to find the magic button which has the power to restore him to human shape.
This movie is definitely worth watching and worth showing to your children. Although the FX seem somewhat outdated, they’re still quite amazing; besides, the combination of living actors and cartoon characters is a thrilling experience for kids. Who said that kids nowadays are only into sophisticated things? Nah… They watch with sheer pleasure movies which were made back in the 1980-s, and 1970-s. Moreover, films like “Akademia” can give you and your kids something else, something which the newest blockbusters lack – these films convey a sense of an inward harmony, can teach you positive thinking and making (and keeping) friends. Now talk about individual isolation in modern society, as they call it. So, all doubts aside, go for it and enjoy!
