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.

A live-action feature about memories that beautifully evokes films and songs from the past.
