Little-known but rewarding; this is a seamlessly told adventure tale about a very young boy who ventures into a surreal nighttime world in the vein of Alice in Wonderland. There's nothing too graphic here, but it's difficult to gauge the right audience: the scary scenes may be too intense for younger viewers, while the conflict (the hero is afraid of the dark) may seem juvenile to older ones. Oddly, the production design visually seems French to me, but the characters speak with British accents.

Captivating, imaginative, Spanish surrealism, which enthralled this adult viewer. A diminutive orphan hero must face his fears to stop a terrible darkness from extinguishing the stars. He travels through a fantastical nightscape reminiscent of old European cities. His magical companions include the Luminosos (small beings who illumine streetlights), the Pastor de Gatos (Cat Shepherd) and the Estrella Polar (North Star). The Spanish-French coproduction is dubbed into United Kingdom accented English.

This is a terrific story! Any parent would love watching this with their kids and would enjoy it too. Ranks up there with THE SELFISH GIANT from the '70's. Everytime you look at your messed up hair in the mornings you'll remember this movie.

This is one of the best "told from the persective of a child" films i've seen in a long time. Tim lives in an orpahange and he dosent like the dark. He is scared and the only way he can get to sleep is if he looks at his star every night. well one night he goes to see her and she is gone, and then other starts disapper too. Its up to tim to save the day in this wonderful story of sel discovery
