Mission Kathmandu: The Adventures of Nelly & Simon
THIS animated movie follows novice detective Nelly Maloy, who, along with an ambitious research assistant Simon Picard she meets in anthropology class, travels to the mountains of Kathmandu with the goal of proving the existence of Abominable Snowman. Directed by Pierre Greco and Nancy Florence Savard, it features the voices of Sylvie Moreau, Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge, and Rachid Badouri. “Designed for a very young audience, the story proves very predictable and very light which exploits only very minimally the folklore of the tales and legends surrounding this animal half-man half-monkey,” writes Charles-Henri Ramond in FilmsQuebec.com
