Brief Synopsis – In a world populated by both humans and robots, a lonely robot tries to find a way to connect with others.

My Take on it – This is an interesting movie that takes the premise of the book “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein and adapts it to a more tangible reality for us to comprehend it better.

The basic idea, which is quite simple, is trying to prove what true love really is; it’s the fact that you will do anything for the one you love no matter the consequences to yourself.

Director Spike Jonze was able to once again prove that he is adept at making movies in all forms and it doesn’t matter if it is in short or long form.

This movie is approximately 30 minutes which is clearly enough time to tell this kind of story.

Despite liking the premise, I can’t really say that I felt the click with the characters, but they were needed to be the way they were in order to get the point across properly.

Bottom Line – Very interesting twist on the premise of true love. I didn’t click 100% with the characters but I understood the point of it. Jonze proves that he is adept at long and short films and knows how to get his message across. The premise is quite simple and works despite the world around being slightly weird.  Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The plot is based on The Giving Tree, and the main character is named after Shel Silverstein. (From Wikipedia)
