The Red Turtle was made in association with Wild Bunch and was directed by Michaël Dudok de Wit. Apart from its impressive animation, it is equally regarded for the absolute lack of dialogue.

Sweet and charming!

It's amazing how much story you can tell without using dialogue. The Red Turtle is a modern masterpiece.

A beautiful film to watch repeatedly. But very heart wrenching at times, I definitely wouldn't recommend for children as the turtle scene is quite horrific.

Hey..... just fell in love. On the to buy list after my first viewing and that says a lot for me, so cuddle up, be ready to have a sigh and a cry and even feel a little renewed. Oh its fine for the kiddies and don't worry about subtitles if that scares you....HEY. (you'll get the joke after viewing)
