"Allegro" is an Italian film from the 1970's that also deals with an orchestra rehearsal but in a strikingly different way. No surprise there; “Allegro Non Troppo” is an animated fantasy that was inspired by but surpasses Disney’s Fantasia in many respects. It’s creator Bruno Bozzetto has been widely hailed as a more modern and adult-oriented animator than Disney. It’s a terrific tongue-in cheek spoof of Fantasia with wonderful music and animation, including well-known classics by Dvorak, Sibelius, Debussy, Ravel, Vivaldi, and Stravinsky. Unlike "Fantasia", Allegro works around a beautifully comic romantic story.
The running time is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes.
Not to be missed!
