My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) Reviews

    Not at all what I expected, which is something I'm very happy about. I only watched this because the ratings were very high (it looked weird and goofy), and I was not disappointed in the slightest. Such a wonderful, emotional, real film.

    It has certain gravitas to it, and this kind of heavy slice of life realism concerning the matter of unhappy and often abused children that can make one really depressed; something like the book "Zoo Station: The Story of Christiane F." (it was quite a thing some years ago I recall), although without all the R-rated stuff. And yet, despite all that, it manages to stay optimistic (not unlike its characters) and, sometimes, wholesome even. It is not a movie I would show to the youngest of audiences, but for teenagers it can be, I imagine, quite a lesson on how to find happiness even in dire condition (in other people, in short), and it is now, after all, quite a timely problem, with all this cases of depression and such, especially among our youth. I have a feeling that this particular story may stay with some spectator for a longer while, and it is certainly a good thing.

    Must see animated movie easily my favorite claymation/stop motion movie of all time just above fantastic mr.fox the animation is beautiful the story is heartwarming and sad while still managing to have comedic moments it doesn't have a ton of jokes but when it does have a joke it's always funny. The movie 100% should have won the Oscar instead of inside out. The movie is also rated PG-13 which allows it to have a more serious tone when it needs to and show some nudity which is used at very funny moments or to break the silence. Overall seeing how it's currently on Netflix in the U.S I would say this is a must watch I would recommend it to anyone looking for a amazing movie to watch in one sitting.

    Not mind-bogglingly profound or anything, but quite tasteful, enjoyable and touching.

    This film surprised us and surpassed our expectations. A short but somber and sweet film.
