YETI OR NOT, HERE THEY COME.
High up in the Himalayas, a yeti called Migo accidentally makes contact with a ”smallfoot”, but the leader doesn’t believe him and banishes Migo from the yeti community. A 3D comedy-adventure, slightly reminiscent of The Croods (2013). The meeting between man and yeti has amusing consequences with dark undertones, as we learn later on. Swiftly directed, funny dialogue and handsome mountain locations; I was specially impressed by how the filmmakers created the lighting. Mediocre story, but the movie gets a boost from the songs, staged like a musical.
