what an underrated gem. every frame on display is worthy to be a painting. the directing may feel familiar, but in the end Ben Sharrock perfectly crafts his own unique style that has an impact on me that craves more work from him. i have a feeling my rating with increase more and more upon rewatches. so good, loved it.
i love movies, especially this one. it’s criminal how this isn’t getting the attention it deserves. FUCK what a movie. it’s everything i would want, full of humanity and compassion. the visual and directing is simply just sublime. Joaquin Phoenix absolutely knocks it out of he park per usual, but Woody Norman and Gaby Hoffman are the true standouts.
C’MON GO SEE IT! definitely worth your while.
with top-notch, gorgeous animation of its vibrant Italian landscapes and character design, fantastic voice work by the cast (especially by Jack Dylan Grazer), its playful score, and a light heartfelt story, Luca is extremely charming and makes for a great summer flick
now i’m craving pasta....
