Film: Allegro non troppo (Fantasy/Romance)
A “gorgeous send-up of Fantasia” with a sly sense of humor. Six animation shorts synchronized with six iconic classical music pieces, and several bizarre black and white intermezzi featuring a sleazy promoter, a bully conductor, a harried artist, and an all-female geriatric orchestra. (Films contain adult themes and are intended for mature audiences.)
