Visually stunning and a great critic of life
14 August 2018 | by Moviemaniac30See all my reviews

The movie although with a false kid friendly imagery gives you a crushing blow about society. It makes good questions about our lives and how we destroy ourselves mentally, physically and emotionally, and also what surround us. You see each character battling their demons and fears, especially the lead character birdboy, who doesn't even speak, with every emotion coming from the animation simple but very creative. You can see the passion that took making each scene. For me it's one of the best animated movies in recent years.
