When he is informed that some American named "Prisney" (or something) has already done it, he decides to do his own version, using an orchestra comprised mostly of old ladies and an animator he's kept locked in a dungeon. Several different classical pieces are animated, while the animator plots his escape. - By the 1970s, America had learned that there were ways other than Disney's to create an animated feature. Although superficially similar to Disney's own Fantasia, Allegro Non Troppo's often ironic and irreverent tone differentiate it from full-length cartoons. Though it owes a debt to Disney, the style of animation is also influenced by innovations from the 1970s. It is looser, occasionally sloppy, with characters that seem as if they're about to melt rather than move: It creates a visual texture that is a sheer delight. The best piece involves a coke bottle left behind by astronauts that -- in an amazingly short period of time -- sparks the creation of a whole plethora of new life forms. The animators' imagination in this sequence is truly impressive. Also worthy of special note is a mournful sequence set in the bare remains of a war-torn city, in which a tired, heartbroken cat reminisces about his past life. Bozzetto and his animators' work is crucial here and creates both an evocative atmosphere and a sense of character that makes audience identification easy. Distinctive and eyecatching, Allegro is a refreshing change of pace in the field of animated cinema.
