Honestly, how can anyone not love a movie where Merlin the Magician is transformed into a magical roll of toilet paper? (He was sleeping in a tree, you see, and it was cut down and turned into various paper products.)
A run down satellite in space suddenly picks up the mournful singing of a broken-hearted young man and becomes obsessed. The satellite transforms itself into a young Astro Boy-ish girl robot and flies to Earth to save the boy, who has been changed into a milk cow and is being hunted by a giant incinerator AND a plunger-wielding maniac who wants to steal his liver! That's because the broken-hearted of the world are all transformed into farm animals and their livers are highly-prized because humans think eating them can transform them back to human (just a false rumour as it turns out). See? It all makes perfect sense!
Surreal as it all is, the story does have the emotional core of the relationship that develops between the "satellite girl" and the "milk cow". Just give in to the weirdness and you can't hlp but be charmed by this offbeat little masterpiece. Kid friendly? Oh, yeah! My three kids, ages 10, 7 and 6 were all swept up in the story, alternately thrilled, intrigued and teary-eyed.
An absolute winner!
