LOUIS AND LUCA - MISSION TO THE MOON
O.V in Spanish subtitled in English
The clever magpie Louis and the nervous hedgehog Luca are about to live a great adventure, as they have been assigned the mission to reach the actual moon. This film is about the ingenious and funny odyssey to space (in which nothing is what it seems like) of these classic characters of the Norwegian stop motion animation, in the best variety of the children's audiovisual, the one that, like SpongeBob, reserves a small ironic undertone only detectable for the adult understanding. Directed by Rasmus A. Sivertsen, responsible for The Haquivaqui Forest and Two Colleagues to the Rescue.
