Ok we may be a bit late on that one… We just have to say this article is made to celebrate the DVD release of the movie!
Inside Out is the last Disney-Pixar concept animated movie. You may think this kind of film is made for children only, but you are totally wrong! I’m even going to say Inside Out is too complicated to be fully understood by someone under twelve years old. The first thing to say about this film is that the visuals are incredible, this is gorgeous movie with very original scenery ideas. We follow at the same time a little girl named Riley and the interactions between her emotions inside her head: Joy, Anger, Sadness, Disgust and Fear during a complicated time in her life. This usualy happy child moves with her parents from the Minnesota to San Fransisco and has to leave her friends, house and habbits behind. This is a very deep film about childhood, growing up and depression. The children will love the colorfull and funny aspects of the movie, whereas the old ones will be impressed by the feelings’ analysis and touched by the situation they may have already experienced.
This moving makes an amazing job in explaining -obviously with sweet metaphors and illustartions- how the brain works, the mechanisms of dreams and even deals with phylosophical ideas, for instance it represents the subconscient exactly as Freud does. Many pedopsychatrists were really impressed by the way the child depression is described, and the movie is already studied and used in some psychology university in the US.
I let you with the trailer. See you next week !
