To Christopher Plummer and Ed Asner…
A fun and charming adventure.
‘Up’ certainly knows how to tug at the heartstrings. It creates a very meaningful story around Carl Fredricksen (Ed Asner), with the early scenes particularly standing out as superb.
I don’t overly enjoy the parts with Dug (Bob Peterson) and Kevin (Pete Docter), not that they are bad, though everything with Fredricksen, Russell (Jordan Nagai) and Charles F. Muntz (Christopher Plummer) is entertaining and/or hearty.
Asner and Nagai do terrific, in what is one of Disney’s ‘best of the rest’ films. There is some lovely music by Michael Giacchino, too. Go watch!
No one is too old to live an adventure
This lovely film tells the story of Carl Fredrickson, a little friendly widower who lives alone in a house restored along with his late wife, Ellie, whose memory he cherishes constantly. Forced to leave his home, threatened by real-estate interests, to live in a nursing home where he didn’t want to go, Carl decides to go on a long journey that always wanted to do with his wife but that life never allowed… and departs with your home through a system that he created and that makes it fly. But the journey is bound to change radically when he meets the scout Russell, eight-year-old, grabbed on his porch, an unwitting passenger on that trip.
Directed by Pete Docter and Bob Peterson, two brilliant directors of Pixar Animation Studio behind hits like “Wall-e”, “Monsters Inc.” or “Finding Nemo”, this film has a number of experienced voices and a touching soundtrack, which earned the Academy Award that year for Best Original Score. A curious fact: the place represented as a destination point for Carl’s trip – the fictional Paradise Falls – exists on the real life, in the border between Venezuela and Brazil: its Mount Roraima.
The most touching on this film is to see the love of Carl and Ellie, alive even after her death and visible in the way he keeps her memory alive and ever present. Russell’s goodness also move us, especially when he is confronted with the harsh ways of stubborn Carl, who sees in Russell a problem. Another deeply moving character is Dough, a friendly and affectionate dog who speaks through a device placed on his leash.
For all these things, “Up” is a film for the whole family, is a film that touches us, moves us and thrills. It proves that, if love cannot move mountains can still move homes, and that no one is too old to live an adventure or fulfill a dream.
