TIFF Kids Talk Film: THE HOUSE OF MAGIC Review
Twitch's tiniest film reviewers will be doing tiny reviews for the TIFFKids film festival currently happening at Toronto's Lightbox Cinema. Willem (Age 11) and Miranda (Age 9) kick off these video micro-reviews with the French/Belgian animated 3D CGI film The House of Magic, that has a stray cat getting caught up in the society and struggle in an old magician's mansion that is home to various animals and mystical automatons.
Twitch has been on the Internet long enough that many of its writing staff have children old enough to understand and consume media in a way that is both raw and fresh. It might even come with an inkling of consideration afterwards -- it's true that many of us fall in love with the movies when we are very young.
In the past, Willem and his younger sister Miranda have discussed films ranging from Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox to Jacques Tati's Playtime to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. They also did a 15 part series on Studio Ghibli which can be found in the Twitch archives or at the Kids Talk Film Channel on Vimeo.
The House of Magic screens at TIFFKids Saturday April 19th at 5pm and Sunday April 20th at 1pm at TIFF Lightbox.
