In true Guillermo del Toro’s fashion, this movie has a dark undertone to this fairytale film. It’s fresh and the stop-motion animation style is so captivating on screen, the story telling fits it perfectly. It is moving to see the relationship between father and son, love and loss and what it means to be yourself. Gregory gave Pinocchio his voice and vibrance. He brings the awe and wonder of childhood to his character and it makes you love Pinocchio instantly.
