The offbeat comedy threatens to suffocate the film, seeping into every scene and nipping any attempts at characterisation or emotional resonance in the bud.
A live-action feature about memories that beautifully evokes films and songs from the past.
Chomet captures the way that memories can mislead or turn into a torrent but despite the jokes, he never loses sight of Paul's sadness.
Unhappily, Chomet's brand of bittersweet whimsy doesn't translate well into live action.
Yes, it takes far too long to get to the punchline, but there's genuine emotion in the story's life-affirming take on the mental shackles we create for ourselves.
Charming and exasperating in equal measure.
Somewhere in here, there's an affecting treatise on what we take from our fathers, and give back to our children.
In a 2014 kook-off, Sylvain Chomet's imaginative confection would take a narrow second place to Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo.
Feels similar (and inferior) to quite a few other films.
Chomet carries over little expressiveness from his animations to live action filmmaking. It's never awful, but it's always flat.
Attila Marcel marks a more than worthy turn for this talented filmmaker.
