Pixar has proved yet again they are master story tellers and their imagination is out of this world. In Inside Out they actually go inside us, inside the brain of a young girl, animating all her emotions – her Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust.
The young girl named Riley is living in Minnesota happily with her parents, surrounded by her friends and playing in her hockey team. Her father gets a job in San Francisco, moves the family to that city, taking Riley into new surroundings and new people. How she handles this and grows over it is the story. But this is not the way Directors Pete Docter and Ronnie del Carmen have told the story, instead we experience it from the perspective of individual characters who play the role of Riley’s emotions. You have a character to portray Riley’s Joy, one for her sadness and so on.
The picturization showing the bridges connecting to islands denoting various aspects of Riley’s life, Memories as round balls are great creativity. Overall, a fun and happy movie to watch especially to watch with kids.
