No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Too grisly for kids, or at least their ticket-buying parents. At the same time, the bouncy musical numbers with their contorted rhymes are unlikely to be embraced by any self-respecting Goth teen.
The animation is great, in its stark, mostly monochromatic way, but the music merely serviceable.
The ever-diverse Patrice Leconte has made an original, darkly humorous animation about a store assisting suicidals.
After the success of the irreverent The Book of Mormon, this would be a natural for the stage-Broadway would be so lucky.
This is a film of two halves, with the half involving sweetness and light muddled and limp in comparison to its tougher, more sinister flipside, while the ending is almost unforgivably trite.
