ABOUT THE FILM

A little boy dreams of discovering life on Mars. Knowing the boy's sincere endeavors, his elderly neighbor takes a hand in the realization of his wish. A heartwarming wish-fulfillment fable imbued with a sense of childhood innocence and wonder plays out through the hybrid of live-action and traditional animation. The elderly neighbor is played by the seasoned actor David Clendenning and Director Austin Andrews--directed the piece at the age of 20--was dubbed "the next Spielberg" by the Calgary Straight.

This is because I feel guilty for putting other people's films down and voting for my own.

ブラボー!いい仕事してますね。駄作にもなりかねないストーリーを見事に裏切ってくれました。特に作品中のアイデアにはセンスの良さを感じました。

本編全体から醸し出される神秘的な雰囲気は逸品。 パステル画のアニメーションを、少年の夢として描くというのは、 かなり面白い発想。 しかしながら、淡々と同じトーンでストーリーが進んでいくので、 終わったときは、「あれっ?」とちょっと拍子抜けしてしまいました。 少年と、その他の人々との人間関係等が、 ほんの少しだけでも、描かれていれば、 もっと味わい深い面白い作品になっていたのではないか、と思います。

何も考えず、とりあえず観てください。 きっと心地の良さに気に入ってしまいます。 少年の夢と隣人の優しさが、ひと時の安らぎを運んでくれる作品です。 そして邦題のタイトルがまたニクイ。 観終わって改めてタイトルを見た時、その‘私’がどんな気持ちでにんまりとビールを飲んだのか、想像できるはず。 これは美味しそうだ!
