GRAND PRIX / GRAND PRI


Wicked Girl / Opaka devojčica
Ayce Kartal, 8:00, Француска / France

After serious deliberation Wicked Girl came out on top as the most well-rounded work in this edition of Balkanima.
It treats a very serious subject with a great sense of homour and tastefully melds surprisingly high spirits with
delicate emotions and touching memories. In terms of design, voice cast, pacing and overall animation
it sets a high mark in this year’s selection so it comes as no surprise that it continues its highly
successful festival run with this Grand Prix.

Nakon ozbiljnog većanja, Opaka devojčica popela se na vrh kao najcelovitiji rad u ovom izdanju Balkanime.
Vrlo ozbiljna tema tretirana je sa sjajnim smislom za humor i ukusno spaja iznenađujuće vedar duh sa delikatnim
osećanjima i dirljivim sećanjima. Kada je reč o dizajnu, glasovima, tempu i animaciji uopšte, ovaj film predstavlja
vrhunac ovogodišnje selekcije i zato ne čudi što ovim gran-prijem nastavlja svoj veoma uspešan festivalski život.
