Dopo quasi un decennio il binomio Disney-Pixar è riuscito a farmi sinceramente emozionare, affrontando un tema complesso come le emozioni umane, con una storia che per essere apprezzata appieno richiede, secondo me, un'età adolescenziale, se non addirittura adulta. Il soggetto è un'amalgama di scene esilaranti e momenti nostalgici, che riporta chiunque sia dotato di un cuore all'età più innocente della vita umana.
If this is a return to form for Pixar then they never was as good as I thought they were. But since the were in fact great, then this movie is highly overrated. Not only do the single beat characters dictate their actions predictably (and not being true to their 'personalities would destroy the whole point), but the whole adventure seems impotent riddled with tear jerkers and clichéd 'emotional' moments.
Pixar's finest, brillhant film that shows both of its best sides: the sensible, emotional stories as seen as WALL-E, RATATOUILLE and FINDING NEMO; and funny, action-packed and energetic adventures of THE INCREDIBLES, MONSTERS, INC and TOY STORY. A pure, absolute delight.
What if bildungsromans dreamt of bildungsromans.. It's true that Pixar's movies are not meant for kids. They're meant for families, reconstructed through new affiliations, broken down in types, re-spliced. Thankfully devoid of a "villain", the film insists on the ethics of growing up — through a purge. Mainly, it's the absurd childhood friend Ding Dong who suffers, a fact so sad this review cannot account for it.
Maybe I'm a bit skewed, but this film helps me speak about a death in the family to my daughter. It speaks to the power of art (even if its corporate art) to transcend the limits of language to something more true. How else can you show a three year old the value of sadness? Beautiful.
