Oscar-nominated, hand-drawn delight that invites audiences of all ages to explore love and loss through its tender portrait of a new friendship.

A bittersweet buddy comedy, Robot Dreams follows Dog, who is lonely, whiling away long evenings in his Manhattan studio apartment. Tired of his solitary life, he decides to purchase a friend, Robot, a fun-loving companion. After an idyllic day on the beach, they soon become separated. Devastated at the loss of his friend, Dog does everything in his power to get Robot back.

“Ultimately, Robot Dreams is a story about how swiftly and lastingly a bond of affection can mark a life, in which the protagonists just happen not to look human[...] It riffs on romcom, sci-fi and horror tropes, and even plays with the cinematic frame in a surprising meta moment, but wears its references lightly, and is free of the irony and wisecracking that saturate so many family-oriented (and indeed adult) films today.” Alex Dudok de Wit, Sight and Sound.

2023. Spain/France. Director: Pablo Berger. Cast: Ivan Labanda, Albert Trifol Segarra, Rafa Calvo. Duration: 1hr 42mins. Cert: PG.
