I really loved the new Disney-Pixar movie, Inside Out. Besides the fun and great animation, it has a deep message about emotions, specially the negative ones.
The story is about Riley, a 12 years old girl that has a pretty happy life until her family moves to San Francisco. Everything there is new and scary, and she starts feeling sad most of the time. At the same time the story follows Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Anger and Fear, Riley's emotions. They make sure Riley stays mostly happy, but by mistake Joy and Sadness loose the most important memories in Riley's life and have to work together to get it back. In that journey, Fear, Disgust and Anger take control of Riley while Joy and Sadness travel around Riley's mind, but in the meantime Riley can't feel those emotions and it turns into a disaster.
love like most of Disney and Pixar's movies, but I really liked Inside Out because it's deeper. I don't think I've ever seen a children's movie that explores a depression, or anything related to the human mind, so it was very original and instructive. It was fun to see how the mind worked as an animation, I've always wondered about how our brain works and I think it's the most amazing thing in the world.
Everyone can relate to Riley, sooner or later. We all have had bad times, like when you don't feel like yourself, everything goes wrong and you start falling into a spiral of emotions until you can't feel anything. I think that's the most dangerous point a person can reach, and I the movie showed that really well. Also, it showed that there it a returning point to any of our bad decisions, and of course everything will get better, specially with the support of your family and friends.
I think it's amazing that Disney and Pixar took the risk of showing something as that in a children's movie, but they did a great job doing a fun and positive movie. What I enjoyed most were the sneak peaks into the parents minds, is it me or we all have those exact thoughts at one time in our life?
Overall, Inside Out is a great fun movie, and I super recommend it! Have you already seen it? Did you like it? Let me know!
