    ★★★★★ Rewatched 29 Apr, 2012

    As a self-confessed fan of Pixar's output I think that this particular film is pretty much note perfect when it comes to pressing all of the appropriate emotional buttons. For a film where a large proportion is almost entirely dependent upon the sound design for its narrative, the rewards are wonderful. The story jumps deftly between drama, and humour, while retaining a wonderful lightness of touch that makes you want to pick it up and give it a big hug. Who would ever have thought that a cockroach could be adorable?

    I'm certain many will identify with a situation where circumstances and personal history conspire to keep two people apart when, by rights, they should really be together. This film manages to document this and in doing so illustrates a type of emotionally maturity rarely seen in movies nowadays. With great performances from the two leads, and a cinematic quality that only serves to illustrate the emptiness of the characters' lives, this film is simply beautiful.
