Paperman has an old-fashioned simplicity about it; it makes no attempts to be clever or flash, but instead produces a charming, beautifully animated and funny film.
The heart-warming storyline is peppered with touches of humour and relatable circumstances while the musical score adds a playful nature which sweeps the plot along effortlessly. The characters are brought to life by a software which lets artists draw over computer-rendered sequences, allowing for the slickness of new Disney with the endearing style of the old.
Paperman is proof that a good story needs only a few minutes and a little bit of magic.
