Animation, Comedy, Drama

A man crippled by the mundanity of his life experiences something out of the ordinary.

The critical consensus

Imaginative, immaculate animation from Charlie Kaufman.

*****Emma Simmonds, The List, 15/02/2016

Anomalisa has more heart, soul and pathos than 99.9 per cent of live-action movies. The best hotel-set love story since Lost In Translation.

*****Ian Freer, Empire Online, 07/03/2016

Charlie Kaufman achieves further artistic greatness with this hilariously funny and horribly real animation about the unbearable loneliness of being.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 10/03/2016

This is a surprisingly dark film, but it is a lyrical and insightful one. It delves into areas that even the frankest live-action dramas shy away from.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 10/03/2016

You care about them, you feel for them, you want things to work out for them. If that isn’t the ultimate compliment you can pay an animated film then I don’t know what is.

*****Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 11/03/2016

Charlie Kaufman shows us what it is to be human. Plus the best use of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ in the movies.

****(*)Jamie Graham, Total Film, 07/03/2016

Charlie Kaufman’s ingeniously animated tale of a man in midlife crisis doesn’t quite hold together.
