Goofs

The time line of this movie suggests it is somewhere between 1885 and 1887. The motorcycle powered by an internal combustion engine was only invented in 1885. Yet the motorcycle shown in the movie as ridden by Mr. Luteau looks more like a motorcycle design of the late 1890s or early 1900s. See more »

[Love-struck, he tosses her a rose. Felicie reaches up to catch it, but loses her balance and falls onto a table. Merante, who was seated nearby, stands up and removes his hat. Felicie gasps in fear]
Mérante: [sternly] I hope that tomorrow you act with a little more dignity.
[starts to walk out]
Mérante: Anyway, tonight was...
[puts his hat back on and smiles]
Mérante: A GOOD performance.

Overall good, but I can't stand Carly Rae Jepsen's voice for Odette
10 June 2017 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

A story about an orphaned girl and her aspiring inventor friend escaping the orphanage to pursue their dreams. Decent, enjoyable, cliché with a hint of Karate Kid in it. I am quite happy to watch it from the beginning to its very end, but only one thing I can't stand, which is Carly Rae Jepsen's voice. I imagined Odette wouldn't sound like that. It's completely unexpected, not in a good way. It lacks passion and charisma of one who used to be the prima, the best ballerina. Her job at portraying Odette is the only thing that holds me back from re-watching this film, which is such a shame because the story and the animation are worth watching twice.
