Disney spared nothing to achieve a visually stunning story (the level of detail and rhythm that the animation proposes is amazing). The colors of the flowers shine and the characters have an aura of tenderness that overwhelms.
Its protagonist, Mirabel, is a flash of joy, although history imposes difficult tests on her in the adventure of finding her place in a very special family niche, in which she is the heroine, but at the same time she is the rare, the rebellious and the misunderstood.

Charm is really unremarkable, she is fun to the best of her ability and knows how to bring very dramatic and profound moments into a good balance.

Mirabel She cannot control the weather like Aunt Pepa, change shape or have the enormous strength of her sister Luisa, something that affects her a little, but which she later understands is an essential part of her role as protector of her loved ones.
