The Secret of Mr. Nostoc


Mr. Nostoc lives in an hectic city. Not stressed or pressed by time, he goes to work, and always has a new surprise under his hat.

When night comes, he goes into his attic and stays there for hours. Working on his secret.

Our Review:

Beautiful film. Excellent art and animation. How everyone, atleast ones in our life would have wished to escape this fast and rushed life. Mr.Nostoc‘s simplicity and humility, his unperturbed state of mind and his way of seeing the world is so beautiful. Wish we could see this world through his eyes.The colours, background score, creativity, storyline and the character animation are outstanding.
