VISUAL REVIEW

commentreview by david bruce
Here is an amazing story about loss and the grief that inevitable follows. The camera follows Carl from childhood and through his wonderful marriage. Sadly he suffers enormous loss of his beloved wife.

We continue on this emotional journey as Carl isolates himself from the rest of the world inside his lonely house. Even his house is isolated.

The new construction surrounding his house is symbolic of the new life construction that awaits Carl.

When little Russell comes knocking at Carl’s front door everything begins to change. The door serves as the visible division between Carl’s loneliness and the amazing new life that awaits him.

When Carl responds to the knock at the door, things begin to change. Even though he does try to close the door on the little boy, his foot is already in the door. Change has entered the Carl’s life.

When the door to new and up-lifting life is opened …WOW!

And this is exactly what UP is about. Here is a powerful story of loss, grief, loneliness, and the affirming response to new life. Here is life, death and resurrection presented as only Pixar can.
