Or redrawn would be more accurate. Don't be fooled if this is an erotic tale (Germany even cut some things out of it, though strangely enough it was more story related than anything else), because while it does contain nudity, there is no explicit intercourse here. Actually it does deal with it in a very original and mostly funny way.

Funny of course only, if you buy into the humor and all the craziness surrounding the movie. The animation may seem a bit dated (obviously), so while some may argue it was pretty good for the time it was made, some others will argue that doesn't help or make it better. You have to decide to which crowd you belong. Overall this won't be everybody's cup of tea for more than a couple of reasons. Watch the trailer, if it speaks to you (not literally ;o) ), than maybe give it a try
