""The Red Turtle" is a visually stunning poetic fable, but there's more on its mind than simply beauty."

Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"Equally enchanting, poetic, sad, breathtaking and mesmerizing. It's among the best Animated films in recent years."

Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru

"A thoroughly disarming fairy tale, one that initially appears familiar, but eventually reveals itself to be something new, and altogether unexpected."

Simon Abrams,

"Wholly original, yet informed by legends of both the East and West, it invites us to contemplate humanity's connections to the natural world and the realm of the spirit."

Peter Howell, Toronto Star
