OKKO’S INN (Annecy International Animation Film Festival Annecy France 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Okko’s Inn has difficulty creating relatability to its characters and seems a bit boring throughout its story. The plotline is jagged and uneven, almost disjointed at times. The idea is great, but it needs smoothing to be a better watch. Still, it is a good visit into other cultures’ interpretation and viewpoint of similar ideas in one’s own culture.


Okko goes to help her grandmother run an inn and finds there are others who are living there besides herself and her grandmother.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The basic idea is good. Not as interesting as it could have been.
