Wonderful animated movie from Disney/Pixar about a 78 year old man who decides to fulfill his lifelong dream: to visit the wilds of South America and the spot he and his late wife always wanted to settle down in. By tying thousands of balloons to his home, he sets out on the adventure of a lifetime, accompanied by a little boy from the explorer troop. Funny, sweet and deeply touching, “Up” deservedly won an oscar for best animated feature of the year 2009; it’s certainly one of the most moving films I’ve ever seen (a real tearjerker some might say). Michael Giacchino’s unforgettable score adds charm to it aswell. A brilliant achievement in every sense of the word.
Fun fact: “First film to be nominated for Academy Awards for both Best Picture and Best Animated Feature.”
