The story depicted in “April and the Extraordinary World” is quite different from what we read during history classes and especially about France, a country described as a romantic and a lovers’ destination. The film takes us back to the era of 1941, where the world is radically different and characterized by bizarre events. There is no taste of development, and things like radios, TVs, aviation, and electricity are a myth. All they have to brag about is their coal and steam, but there is some willing to stand out and it is Avril (Marion Cotillar). She is a teenage girl whose parents are among the missing scientists and together with Darwin (Philippe Katerine), a talking cat, her grandfather pops, and a young police informer Julius, the quartet head out to find Avril’s parents. Together, they will face the mysteries of their outdated world. ‘April and the Extraordinary World’ is a fine touch of Christian Desmares and Franck Ekinci that will captivate your heart from the beginning to the end. It draws us through the fundamental beauty of animation with its funny scenarios.
April and the Extraordinary World (2015)
Inspired by Roland Barthes, ‘Let the Sunshine In’ has got every quality of capturing your eyes and heart. The single woman has been through a lot, and currently, she is unable to come up with a resolution of either searching for that ‘one guy’ or leave without the actual pleasures as every man around her seems not to offer what he must. It is due to that, that Isabelle heads out to a relationship therapist, a guy with his own stories. He urges Isabelle to open up and an in the middle of the conversation, the therapist suggests himself as a possible partner. When we are to turn around, Isabelle is also involved in several relationships; one with a banker- a handsome, but a disorganized guy, an artist who is sensitive, and a sexy guy who dances with her in a bar occasionally to others. To add to that, Isabelle is still involved with her ex-husband, a guy who has got a different sexual taste that Isabelle hates. What could be the final decision for this young woman as she searches for true love?
