Natalie Hamel Roy,
One night of the eighteenth century, in the depths of the mountain, a human being is lost and finds a small temple. In the moment when he enters the room space is transformed into a completely different world.
"Me and My Moulton" is a Norwegian/Canadian production by Torill Kove. Kove previously won in this category with "The Danish Poet" and was also nominated for "My Grandmother Ironed the King's Shirts". Because of this, she might just be the favorite to repeat in this category because may of the Oscar folks are probably familiar with her work. Like her previous films, the animation itself is only fair but it works fine with the story--but the story abounds with a wonderful sense of humor and is exceptionally sweet. It also captures the spirit of what it is like to see the world through the eyes of the young. The film consists of the recollections of a little girl about her life growing up in Norway and it abounds with charm. I only rated it an A- due to the quality of the animation.
