In a distant, but not so unrealistic future, where mankind has abandoned earth because it has become covered with trash from products sold by the powerful multi-national Buy N Large corporation, WALL•E, a garbage collecting robot has been left to clean up the mess. Mesmerized with trinkets of earth’s history and show tunes, WALL•E is alone on Earth except for a sprightly pet cockroach. One day, Eve, a sleek (and dangerous) reconnaissance robot, is sent to earth to find proof that life is once again sustainable. WALL•E falls in love with Eve. WALL-E rescues Eve from a dust storm and shows her a living plant he found amongst the rubble. Consistent with her “directive” Eve takes the plant and automatically enters a deactivated state except for a blinking green beacon. WALL•E, doesn’t understand what has happened to his new friend, but true to his love, he protects her from wind, rain, and lightening, even as she is unresponsive. One day a massive ship comes to reclaim Eve, but WALL•E, out of love or loneliness hitches a ride on the outside of the ship to rescue Eve. The ship arrives back at a large space cruise ship, which is carrying all of the humans who evacuated earth 700 years earlier. The people of earth ride around this space resort on hovering chairs which give them a constant feed of TV and video chatting. They drink all of their meals through a straw out of laziness and/or bone loss, and are all so fat that they can barely move. When the auto-pilot computer, acting on hastily given instructions sent many centuries before, tries to prevent the people of earth from returning, by stealing the plant, WALL•E, Eve, the portly captain, and a band of broken robots stage a mutiny. —IMDb
A key figure in the development of Pixar Studios, Andrew Stanton was the writer-director of some of the computer animation company’s biggest hits, including “Toy Story” (1995), “A Bug’s Life” (1998), “Finding Nemo” (2003) and “WALL-E.” In the grand tradition of Disney’s animation team from the 1930s and such legendary figures as Ray Harryhausen and Don Bluth, Stanton’s best films were a near-perfect balance of breathtaking visuals and heart-tugging emotion; the lifelike quality of cowboy toy Woody or the silent, industrious robot WALL-E never overwhelmed their fully rendered hopes and dreams and ambitions. The combination of these elements brought Stanton significant acclaim and considerable awards, but more importantly, it established him as one of the most creative figures in motion pictures – live action and animated – working in 21st century Hollywood.

i haven't seen this in 5 years but looking back - wall-e was very sweet and one of the deeper statements disney/pixar has tried to make but either i am too cynical or it was yet another act of repetition of disney's tropes - slightly offensive and slightly oblivious but as a movie marketed towards??people who go to watch disney movies?? - good
Rivisto ieri sera: semplicemente capolavoro! Oltre che per il messaggio ecologista, per il coraggio (prima dei riconoscimenti a The artist) per aver osato un incipit da film (quasi) muto. Citazioni cinefile a grappolo. Il lieto fine d'obbligo nei film Disney gli toglie la lode. Imperdibile
A deliciously sweet romance in the forefront. The film is bliss whenever it's just Wall-E and Eve. It's a shame about the fate of the human species, who are surely going to repeat the mistakes of their ancestors. Their story in this film is shockingly cynical for a family film. Their optimism is misguided and the HAL 9000 bot is a good guy just trying to do what was right. I do love this bizarre little film.

This is a prime example of how much film can convey without dialogue or even without actors. Every time I see this, I am struck by the emotional power of the long sequences in which WALL-E is alone… read review
