Life in a lake, through a looking glass
1 January 2006 | by standardbearerSee all my reviews

Vizipók csodapók (could be roughly translated as: water spider-wonder spider)has originally been made as a TV series, and this version is a full feature movie, chopped together from some of the episodes. This one tells the story of a year of the main character, the water spider (not a very realistic one, but yet even more characteristic), from spring to the end of autumn. through this time he discovers the life in the lake makes new friends, builds his own castle from web, and air-bubbles, and when winter comes nearer, and the water gets cold he comes out from the lake, back to an empty snail-shell, for a winters-sleep. This cartoon displays the flora and fauna of the lake and shore with an ecologist's profoundness. After watching it you get to know many interesting things about the ecosystem there. And the top of that its a beautifully made, and very entertaining movie. Our water-spider always gets himself into new adventures, meets new creature of the deep, but the best is when he's just chatting with his conformist neighbors: the water snails, or his best friend ever, the moody cruciferous spider (I don't know how you call it), who lives by the shore. Anyway, the very best thing about it, is its completeness. The film ends the same way it starts, it comes a full circle, and at the end the main character realizes it too, and we all come to the idea, that in nature there's always a start over, its never the end.
