Plot

In 1984, Dog resides in the Manhattan. Dog is really lonely, when he sees an ad for a Robot. Dog orders one, and the two become great friends. However, Dog and Robot are separated after an accident at the beach. Will the two get back together?

Star Performances

Pablo Berger and Fernando Franco have delivered an absolute winner with this film. Alfonso de Vilallonga should be equally appreciated for his outstanding music.

Analysis

Imagine a movie with no dialogues, no thrills, and no over the top elements. Yet, it is so powerful that you are extremely emotional by the time the movie ends.

‘Robot Dreams’ is precisely that movie. Very few people know that this was the director’s dream project, but it took almost 13 years to bring this project to life. Yet, Pablo Berger was not the one to give up easily.

The story is about a lonely dog who lives in Manhattan. He is so lonely that when he sees an ad for a robot, he orders it immediately. Not many would realize the metaphor behind this move, but Pablo has done a brilliant job in this direction. Although this movie may not be as tear jerking as ‘Hachiko’, it does follow the same template. Maybe the effort of 13 years did not go down the drain.

The messaging in this movie is outstanding. With the simplest of images, the director tells us some of the most important lessons of life, and in no instance does he go overboard. There is also a smart use of electronic music in this movie, and those who loved the music of late 80s and 90s will not be disappointed at all. In fact, the scenes where the dog and the robot miss each other are some of the purest scenes that must not be missed at all.

While there are some flaws, they are few and far in between. Thanks to editor Fernando Franco, nowhere do you feel bored or disappointed with the movie. Even Alfonso de Vilallonga did an effective job with the music of this movie.

What’s There

  • Simple but effective messaging
  • Brilliant efforts by writer and director Pablo Berger
  • Good editing by Fernando Franco
  • Soulful music by Alfonso de Vilallonga

What’s Not There

  • Minor flaws that have little effect on the flow

Verdict

‘Robot Dreams’ is one movie that is emotionally, as well as aesthetically appealing. Pablo Berger delivers a simple but effective story that packs a solid punch. He is ably supported by the outstanding work from Fernando Franco and Alfonso De Vilallonga. If you want a film that leaves you changed for life, you must go and watch this film for once!
