Audience Reviews for My Life as a Zucchini

  • Apr 05, 2017
    My Life as a Zucchini flies by in a scant 70 minutes but mines more depth of emotion than a drama twice its length. The nature of the production allows the disturbing script to deal with sensitive problems that might be off-putting in a live action movie. As performed with stop motion puppets the weighty issues take on a poignant charm. Sometimes children find themselves without a mom or a dad. The circumstances are many: some have passed on, others arrested, deported, or maybe they have just simply abandoned them. It's a heartwarming tale that doesn't sugarcoat the toughest thing a youngster may ever have to face. Yet somehow kids manage to weather the tribulations that life throws at them. The narrative delves into the need for a child, and anyone really, to feel loved. My Life As A Zucchini received an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature Film well before it was even available in theaters. Now it has been officially released and it's still pretty hard to find. I suspect most people will have to discover this lovingly crafted gem once it's available to rent. And please do seek it out. It's an unconventional delight. fastfilmreviews.com

    Though it isn't really special, a lot of people will find it hard to resist this sweet and tender story full of heart about abandonment and friendship, given the realistic way it talks about its themes and its expressive characters made in a very lovely stop-motion animation.
