Per Åhlin's masterpiece from 1989 is loosely based on and is an homage to Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’. It stands out as one of the most complete animated Scandinavian features from the last century.
The Journey to Melonia is a story about the wizard Prospero who lives on the fertile island of Melonia, along with his daughter Miranda and some strange, but good helpers. One day after a great storm, a box arrives the Island from Plutonia, a fully industrialized island across the sea. A little boy has escaped from child labour in Plutonia, waking the citizens of Melonia to take action against the cruel chiefs of Plutonia.
