Synopsis

The world's full of best friends like Mimi and Lisa. But there’s one small thing that sets them apart. Mimi’s eyes are always shut, but it’s not because she’s asleep. Mimi cannot see and Lisa probably loves her friend all the more since she isn’t like all the other girls; she’s special. Together they have all sorts of marvellous adventures, proving that eyes aren’t the only means of seeing. Our sense of touch and particularly an acute sense of hearing can, in many instances, be a fine substitute for sight; in fact, they can sometimes work even better. Mimi & Lisa: Christmas Light Mystery is a delightfully playful animated film for children and adults which takes a look at a wonderful world where you can read with your fingers, and that’s not even the half of it.

Anna Purkrábková
