I found ReCreations Collection very interesting and very sweet. It doesn't so much tell a story, but tells how to make a fun and exciting card for someone. You should know that the dialogue is in French with English subtitles.

This short film features a woman, Patsy Van Roost (also self-described as a fairy) making letters that spread joy.

The story is very interesting. It is really a documentary about a woman who spread love and joy by creating custom made letters for people. She is adorable and tells her story in an engaging, heartwarming and fascinating way.

The cinematography is well executed. One of my favorite shots is one where the letters are featured. The primary set is in Patsy's workshop where she fabricates her creations. We see a collection of paint brushes, fabrics, and all different types of materials she uses to create her magic. Every corner hides more little things that one might use in their magic making. The film's background music is fun and upbeat, with a slight jazz feeling to it. Patsy is definitely the star of this show and, as self-described as a fairy, I believe she is one. It appears that she brings joy to anyone in her universe. I have to praise the editor, because the movie is beautifully edited. The film taught me how to make a message for someone by cutting out big letters in fabric. My favorite part of the film is near the end, when Patsy shows the letter to her son.

I give this film 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 12, plus adults. Reviewed by Sandrine A., KIDS FIRST! Juror
