Waltz With Bashir

December 3, 2009

Astonishingly animated bio-pic of Folman’s half-remembered part in 1982 invasion of Lebanon. Oozes raw power and visual beauty. Oscar nom. & 23 other awards. ¬•Painting each frame of Waltz With Bashir took almost four years and many doubted it could be done. But there is no question that the result is one of the most resonant films of its year from any source, and quite probably a landmark in animation. It combines hallucinatory dreamscapes, the horrors of hard truth and a natural beauty of expression that has not often been matched before.’ Derek Malcolm, London Evening Standard
