Lee Seong-kang’s MY BEAUTIFUL GIRL MARI (2002) was one of our great film discoveries this year. The animation is beautiful and inventive. It’s the story of a young boy who seems to have everyone around him always leaving him. He seems to find a solution by entering a dream world, where he meets Mari. Seeing it’s set during his summer vacation there’s no better time to watch it than right now. We’d say appropriate for age 7+.Tweet
Michel Gondry has changed culture many times over. His Lego video may be the greatest video ever. And his Rubik’s Cube series are among the YouTube Hall of Fame. I look forward to the day when “Sweded” films take over from the corporate. Homemade always tastes better. This Star Wars trumps any thing Lucas did after the first three (and that is the TRUE first three, not the alternately titled first three). And the soundtrack ranks with John Williams’ best work.
And I mean that in the best possible way. We all need to dance, just like we all need to laugh. I think this proves both. What a way to see the world! 42 countries, including outer space! And all with happy feet (thanks to Ellen D. for the tip!)
