Robot Dreams (PG)
Based on the popular graphic novel by Sara Varon, this Spanish animation is a dialogue-free, family-friendly love story about friendship. Dog lives in Manhattan. Fed up with being
alone, he builds himself a companion, Robot. Their friendship blossoms, and they become inseparable, exploring the sights and sounds of 1980s New York together. But one summer
night, Dog, with great sadness, is forced to abandon Robot at the beach. Will they ever meet again? The first animation from Berger (Blancanieves) captures perfectly, and with sharp humour, that special zing of symbiosis – and its fragility. Earth, Wind & Fire’s dance-floor filler ‘September’ lights up the soundtrack and, full of nods to silent cinema classics, the film
will delight audiences young and old alike.
