It really hits viewers in the gut, not only because the delicious food on display are mouth watering. The scenes from the food preparation, as well as the stories behind them makes the audience yearn for the days that they can travel back to Ilocos to experience the dishes for themselves. The documentary gives faces to the people behind the extraordinary food that provides comfort and joy like no other. In the same vein, it is heartbreaking to learn of their challenges during this pandemic, which is ill deserved for these people whose joy is cooking.
The film’s cinematography was was visually arresting — the framing, the colors, the contrasts. The film’s cast was charming and engaging. It only ran for minutes but it will linger in your memory for far longer because it was simply beautiful.
I would have to say that Ulan will not be a film for everybody. Its success or failure is relative to the audience’s taste. One thing is for sure, though. Its an unforgettable film that challenges convention and its one brave movie for going against the norm.
All in all, I was well and truly impressed by how Coco managed to celebrate Mexican culture and tradition with the wonderful details of the animation. The film really came to life in a unique and different way. The OST was also one of the best that Disney Pixel had to offer and really stepped up the emotional level of the movie. In my opinion, the purity of the voice acting also played a major factor in the film’s success.The film also had a very moving message — that while families won’t always understand one another, love will overcome every obstacle. Congratulations to director John Lasseter for pulling another memorable film.
