KUBO DER TAPFERE SAMURAI
USA 2016 R: Travis Knight
Animationsfilm. 101 min. DCP. DF. Recommended from 8 years
Kubo lives in a quiet village by the sea and spends the days telling stories to his mother and the villagers and playing songs to them on his shamise, a magical musical instrument.

The meditatively staged Far East fairy tale is a visually outstanding animated film adventure.
