filled with wonder
How good it is to wake up and remember that animation does not mean Hollywood only. In the last years, we had Japanese Ghibli studios (soon under Disney's control apparently?!), Sylvain Chomet's Belleville triplettes and MICHEL OSLO (loved Azur & Asmar !!). I'm now discovering U by GRÉGOIRE SOLOTAREFF & SERGE ELISSALDE and falling in love with U. What a wonderful story ! After a couple of minutes you are not looking at a film anymore, you feel part of this colorful family, listening to their welcoming, friendly and warm-hearted chat. Little story, no showing-off but what a major film at the end. You can look find a lot of different things in this movie but even if you are just waiting for a bit of entertainment you will love it too. I know that you are probably struggling to keep a different animation style alive (this water-color is so vivid and full of life) and I wanted to thank you for keep trying. I'm not saying Pixar or Dreamworks are crap, but just that need something else too to keep being filled with wonder. Cheers guys !
