This whimsical drama about a grieving husband, Víctor, and his wise nine-year-old son, Ingmar, sensitively covers some serious topics with humour and compassion. Víctor has descended into alcoholism and depression, but he was once a talented filmmaker and model maker extraordinaire. Struggling to cope with his current reality, he takes his devoted son on flights of fancy using some delightful animation and 2D special effects, drawing on the hundreds of movies they’ve watched together. Produced by Álex de la Iglesia, there are hints of darkness here, but it’s also a beautiful homage to classic cinema and traditional animation. ¡Viva! cinephiles get set to be enchanted by this magical tale.
