FAMILY FILM: Robot Dreams (PG)


Dir: Pablo Berger | Spain, France | 2023 | 102 mins | Silent animation

Pablo Berger’s gorgeous, witty silent animation is based on Sara Varon’s popular graphic novel.

Dog lives in Manhattan and he’s tired of being alone, so he builds himself a companion, Robot. Their friendship blossoms, and they become inseparable, exploring the sights and sounds of 1980s New York. But one summer night, they’re forced to part. Will they ever meet again?

The first animation by Spanish director Pablo Berger (Blancanieves), Robot Dreams is a dialogue-free ode to friendship, its importance and fragility. Wise and wistful, charming and funny, with evocative sound design and a lovely soundtrack, it’s full of nods to silent cinema classics.
