A stop motion 3D animation, it has been described as a family film but I doubt it will be seen in that light. To start with it is presented in black and white, the story is grim where we have an aloof introvert child who is trying to bring back his dead dog to life via a science experiment. Cheery? No! What follows though is unexpected and very well animated. The beauty of the film is keeping the whole parental guidance intact even after delving in such a subject. Full points to Tim Burton for presenting something so bold and dark, so well! Truly pushing the boundaries for the animated realm, which is not only restricted to one genre any longer!
