“My Life as a Zucchini” (2016)

There really are no words to describe just how charming and delightful this movie is, surprisingly so considering this film’s sometimes unpleasant and rather dark subject material. I have absolutely zero problems believing that the conversations between the kids in this film are real conversations between real kids; they’re that well written. It manages to capture so much raw emotion in such a short runtime of 66 minutes than so many other films with even double that runtime could only dream of, and it does so by being unafraid of its thematic material. This really and truly is a one-of-a-kind and special film.
