This slovenly, incoherent Argentinean feature (2002) combines live action, 2-D animation, and CGI for its story of a mad scientist who's ridding the world of color. The denizens of Fantasy World (a dimension of charmless, slapdash animation) arbitrarily select a young girl named Micaela (Micaela Casotto) to lead the battle against monochromatic evil, pull her into their world, and inundate her with platitudes about believing in herself, never giving up on her dreams, etc. Armed with some magic pencils, she returns to the live-action world and handily restores the missing hues. Children's entertainment doesn?t get much more dispiriting than this. Rosanna Manfredi directed. In Spanish with subtitles. 88 min.
