THE RED TURTLE (Theatrical Release USA 2016)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

The Red Turtle—animated film has a 5.0 storyline—does not have a 5-star portrayal. Besides that, this film is nothing to cough at as it delivers a unique story about the way humans raise ourselves generationally. The movie moves in an almost elegant fashion with great heart. The cinematography works with such craft that the cinematography earns its own re-watch-ability status. Craftsmanship shows itself in this re-watchable piece of entertainment. This high caliber film more than deserves its watch.
