Synopsis
Robinson Crusoe has its share of action and the brisk pace does help. The animal and bird characters are no doubt lovely to watch. The sight gags and snappy one-liners will also elicit a few laughs from children.

Story: The old tale of Robinson Crusoe penned by Daniel Defoe gets a retelling, with a Belgian-French touch. This film is also from the perspective of the animals that reside in the island. And it is a loose adaptation.

Review: Tackling a revered classic can be a dicey proposition, but the directors have wisely made it an 'interpretation' instead of a faithful facsimile of the original. And wisely so, as it will no doubt help to introduce a new generation to this fabled tale.

As mentioned earlier, we get to see a different perspective here - that of the native animal life in the island. And it is indeed a paradise. The camaraderie between the animals is admirable. Not only do they coexist, but they also help each other out of troublesome situations.

We are introduced to a host of colourful characters. Mak (Howard), a parrot who is the most ambitious of the lot wants to spread his wings and see the bigger picture. He knows that the island is not the be-all and end-all of the animal world. There's a chameleon, a fast-talking tapir (Berzins), a kingfisher that appears to be quite concerned about Mak and there's also a visually-challenged goat. The animals help the stranded Crusoe (Lowenthal) and the latter blends in well with his new environment. Life is indeed peachy for them all on their island in the South Pacific. Except for a pair of cats, who seem to have some serious anger issues.

Robinson Crusoe has its share of action and the brisk pace does help. The animal and bird characters are no doubt lovely to watch. The sight gags and snappy one-liners will also elicit a few laughs from children. However, after a point it can at times veer into slapstick zones. A slightly better screenplay too would have enhanced the film further. But by and large, it doesn't detract anything from the general message of the film, which is about the importance of teamwork, collaboration, and friendship in tough situations. The rendering of the animation itself is decent, without being over-saturated. Fun fare for kids.
