Caroline Coraline: Have you ever wished for a different life?

Last Saturday, I went to the cinema with Laurence and Pascal and saw one of the CLEVEREST, AWESOME and FASCINATING films I’ve ever seen: Coraline
All began some days ago, when I saw on Laurence Tumblelog a video explaining the extremely well-orchestrated social media campaign the advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy made to promote Coraline (Check it out here and on W+K blog here!)… I then spoke about the film with some friends and those who had already seen Coraline loved it!

All of this aroused my curiosity and we finally went to the Covent Garden Odeon to watch it in 3D.

The plot summary

A young girl walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life – only much better. But when her adventure turns dangerous, and her counterfeit parents (including Other Mother) try to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home – and save her family.

The biggest smallest movie ever made

Directed by Henry Selick (T”he Nightmare Before Christmas”) and based on Neil Gaiman‘s book of the same name, Coraline is the first feature film from Portland animation studio Laika.
And when you think that every single thing you see on screen was made by hand, it’s totally amazing!  These videos about the doll hair and knitting will give you an idea about the work behind the scenes.

Have I ever wished for a different life? Yes, a  life where I could see more films like this… Awesome!Just awesome! And you?

Don’t wait anymore! Rush to the cinema and discover the enchanting and scary world of Coraline!
