Once again Pixar has done a fantastic job with their annual animated film, Up, the flick about an old man and a lot of balloons:
It’s unusual to see any movie, let along a cartoon, to center its story on a whithering old man. Up had done it so well, that our theater was unusually crowded with senior citizens.
It’s also unusual to hear tough 20-something young people to admit shedding tears. But the first thing that I heard from both persons who saw this movie before us was how they cried like a baby (or almost there). We were also deeply touched by the nearly silent delivery of a simple yet loving story of the two common folks. Maybe this is how love stories really should be told.
