It won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, and it deserved it. Somber, depressing, and quite wonderful! Art, as opposed to another art film. I liked this even better than "The Artist."
Pretty bad casting, directing, acting, and a very bad script. Other than that, I loved it. The critics seemed somewhat mystified about how one of the principle players at Pixar—John Lasseter—could have created this mess. My theory—John Lasseter was missing from the process (according to everyone I've ever spoken to, Lasseter is the genius of geniuses at Pixar. It sure looks that way.)
A few laughs, but not nearly enough for me. Felt like one of those flicks where everybody involved was stoned throughout the scriptwriting and shooting.
