TriCoast Entertainment has released Danish writer/director Karla von Bengtson’s (Tigers and Tattoos, Princess Rita, The Shadow in Sara) family animation, AGATHE-CHRISTINE: NEXT DOOR SPY, onto various digital streaming platforms.
Utilizing the technique of “cut out” animation, AGATHE-CHRISTINE: NEXT DOOR SPY is unique and artistically employs color. “Vibrant hues capture the emotional strength of each scene. Of special note are the noir scenes Agatha imagines herself in, which feel reminiscent of old ’50s films,” wrote CBR.
AGATHE-CHRISTINE: NEXT DOOR SPY follows 10-year old Agathe-Christine, or simply AC, who prefers to be on her own. AC fancies mysteries, and from the basement in her new building, she has established a small detective bureau. AC’s first mystery appears to be simple to solve, but before long, AC finds herself involved in a much more complicated affair, than she could have ever foreseen.
The movie’s mystery plot is an opportunity for writer-director Kara von Bengston to touch on issues kids often encounter, like moving to a new town, exasperating sibling relationships, and asserting one’s specialness.
“[Agathe-Christine’s] persistence on getting to the heart of the matter and finding solutions for herself is admirable. The fact that she’s aware that she’s considered ‘different’ and dresses ‘weird’, yet somehow is not moved by the opinion of others speaks volumes of her inner strength and tenacity,” wrote Moms.com.
TriCoast Entertainment has released AGATHE-CHRISTINE: NEXT DOOR SPY onto various digital streaming platforms (InDemand, Amazon, iTunes, DirecTV, AT&T, FANDANGO, FlixFling and Vudu).
