Cerulia: WE ARE THE WEIRDOS Review

Cerulia: WE ARE THE WEIRDOS Review

In her intricate animation short, Cerulia, director Sofia Carrillo explores the effect that our childhood memories have on our present lives.

When Cerulia is told that it is finally time to go and say goodbye to her childhood home, she is confronted by powerful evocations of her past self. She realises that leaving her former life behind will not be as easy as she thought, as these memories have a hold on her in ways that she cannot escape.

The sets are so breathtaking, with painstakingly complex detail added to each and every frame, making the set completely come to life. The final product is so wonderful, and such a feast for the eyes, that you are completely transported into Carillo’s world as if it were real.



She intelligently incorporates ideas of childhood and the imaginary friends we create, the split self, and the way our past haunts us and have a profound effect on the rest of our lives. There is something about childhood memories, whether good or bad, that are particularly difficult to leave behind, and that’s what makes Cerulia so clever.

This film is well worth seeing, if not only for the mesmerising set and incredible attention to detail, but also for the moving story. There is a haunting beauty about the film, and the story will make you think about your childhood habits in a new light. It will appeal to animation and film lovers alike, with its fairytale twist appealing to all ages.
