Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both the ancient tragedy and Nina's modern conundrum in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic "Ramayana". Both Roger Ebert and A.O. Scott gave the film 100% critical rating. Ebert called it "astonishingly original" and Scott claimed it "dazzling . . . affecting, surprising and a lot of fun."
