WALL-E by Andrew Stanton


The Future. Humanity has left a polluted Earth and left one little robot behind. Wall-E, short for “Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-class”, who looks a lot like Johnny 5 from Short Circuit, is cleaning up Earth since 700 years, and somewhen in all those centuries he has developed his own personality. He collects various items he finds in the garbage, he is quite curious, he watches an old videotape of Hello, Dolly! – and he feels lonely. That changes when EVE (Extra-terrestrial Vegetation Evaluator), a probe sent from space and looking for plant life on Earth, appears.

EVE is much more advanced, and cold and fierce at first, but what follows is one of the great love stories in the history of film, and WALL-E, as worn-out and outdated he may seem, is much more resourceful as he first seems (and he is incredibly cute!), and he will not only follow his beloved EVE into space but also ultimately save the Earth and humankind.

Pixar delivers another great story with astonishing visuals, including the probably most beautiful pictures of outer space ever to grace the silver screen, lovable characters and references to Science Fiction-classics like 2001 – A Space Odyssey. The ecological message and social critique (lethargic humans who spend all their time in virtuality and unambiguously follow each new fashion trend) are unobtrusively packaged between the action and the love story.
Almost perfect movie-making as it should be.
And the short film “Presto” before the main feature – starring a stage magician and his hungry rabbit slugging it out – is Pixar par excellence as well.
