LEARNING TO FLY cover image
Enthralling. A girl on the beach longs to be able to fly. While chasing birds and one mysterious butterfly that she wants to draw in her sketch book, her imagination takes flight. With the help of her imagination and high quality CGI, the girl is transported to the skies, with a giant pair of butterfly wings. After her day dream, the girl is disappointed, until she sees a Han glider and it is obvious it will take no time at all for her dream to become reality. The visual production is high quality and the CGI of the girl flying with giant butterfly wings is great to watch. There is no dialogue, the music is compelling and fits the tone of the scenes very well.
A fantasy film in the spirit of "The Red Balloon", our young protagonist, Elizabeth, finds herself in pursuit of a butterfly and of the dream of human flight. We see the world as Elizabeth imagines it, the world of a child where the inconsequential takes on supernatural significance.
