The flatly generic results certainly appear at odds with the picture's stirring visual style, which pays homage to the great Flemish artists.

This graphically well-rendered kidpic is less crass and mouthy than many recent feature-length toons, but also more sluggish and ungainly as it tries to approximate DiCamillo's singularly delicate tone.
