"How do you rise above your differences, when you can't agree which way is up?"
-Head Over Heels
An older couple, emotionally and physically distanced from each other, lead parallel lives—he on the ground and she on the ceiling.
For those fans of stop-motion animation, I can understand why this would be a favorite. It is clever and beautifully rendered.
For me, stop-motion animation is a detraction, not a plus. Unlike Aardman Animation's Pirates! Band of Misfits and Tim Burton's Frankenweenie (both 2013 Oscar-nominated animated features), Head Over Heels, does not adequately compensate to overcome my bias. Did I mention that I loathe puppets?
I must recuse myself—I cannot objectively judge this one other than to say (God help me), it's better than Adam and Dog. If you're into stop-motion animated puppets, please enjoy Head Over Heels in its entirety below.
