Shot a few years ago in Rennes (France), A Ride Towards the Sea is an experimental stop-motion story of a little man who goes out into the real world, but is not able to catch up with it.
The film offered a marvelous way to play with image and sound. As a result, it lets us vicariously experience our everyday life through the eyes and ears of the little protagonist.
The story also features a red fish the man is helping to get back home... Those of you who loved Pixar's Finding Nemo, will probably recognise the character that was inspired by the journey of the original clownfish, returning for a new adventure in Finding Dory.
