About the Film:
Animation fantasies are a way to escape reality. Just imagine yourself in your house, thousands of feet above the ground dangling by numerous balloons. Follow the adventure of a little boy camper and an old man on a mission. Both these characters are separated by two generations, yet, connected by one strong bond: the Spirit of Adventure! The movie will leave a deep impact and a sense of admiration in you.
Why Should you watch it:
A sagaciously constructed, yet one of the most naïve movie ever brought on the silver screen, Up, is a deliciously successful attempt by Pete Docter to touch the most sensitive cords in the human heart. An animation movie, which makes no relation to realism, but the minimalistic yet emotional approach to the protagonists: ranging from a boy to an old man, searching for adventure, will leave you flabbergasted!
