Editorial Reviews

2005 Academy Award Winner -- A powerful animated film that explores the difficult emotional terrain of father/son relationships as seen through Canemaker's own turbulent relationship with his father. Featuring the voices of Eli Wallach and John Turturro in the roles of father and son, The Moon and the Son combines memory, fact, conjecture, trial transcripts, audio recordings, home movies, photos, and original animation to tell the story of an Italian immigrant's troubled life and the devastating consequences of his actions on his family.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little gem of cinematic autobiography January 23, 2012
"The Moon and the Son," John Canemkaer's beautifully-crafted, Oscar-winning animated reflection on his sometimes complex relationship with his Italian father, is a little gem of cinematic autobiography. Through the power of traditional, hand-drawn animation and thoughtfully composed voice-over narration, John explores this deeply personal subject with a level of truth and honesty that are unique to this marvelous medium. What would be impossible to convey in live action footage and photo-montage is brought to vivid life through John's highly expressive drawings and paintings. This film is essential viewing for anyone interested in animation, the Italian-American immigrant experience, and sincere autobiographical film.
