[6.75/10] The Red Turtle (2016)

The Red Turtle (2016)

Quick Review: Some viewers may be underwhelmed by the utter lack of dialogue, but those with an open mind would realize real fast that this mute animated feature is amazing at telling its simple, yet unusual story with fairy tale-like fantasy elements through its imagery. Calming, quietly emotional, and deeply mesmerizing, "The Red Turtle" impresses with its hand-drawn animation, use of color and attention to detail, proving that visual storytelling needs no words to move or make an impact.
