UP is a story of a man who loses his wife and has to take the whole house to a place they consider as "paradise".
The script is the saving factor of this film. How could a child's film be so profound? The characters have personalities, including the rare bird. And Russel, the wilderness explorer, is as lovable as ever, with the likes of a real child. Digital animation never ceases to amaze the audience, more so if it has a deeply human touch.
Losing a loved one can be as painful as ever. That is why we need to let go through a quiet acceptance. But there's much more to life. Not only do past relationships matter, but so do present and future ones. And like the past relationships, life continues to be enriched with love which makes it live forever. Congratulations for a film like this!
