An avid fan of Pixar animations works I managed to find time over the weekend to catch their latest “Inside Out” with the wife. Did not regret that decision one bit. Their latest is yet another remarkable piece of storytelling. If time permits please squeeze a viewing into your schedule. Though I’m not a parent yet I personally feel the premise might be a little heady for kids of the pre-school variety.
What was equally impressive is the Pixar short “Lava” . Over the years the animation studio has given young filmmakers an opportunity to prove their mettle with their short film being attached before the feature length presentation. Director James Ford Murphy doesn’t disappoint with his heartfelt short.
If you haven’t caught “Inside Out” (now playing in Singapore) or heard “I Lava You” then I suggest not spoiling it for yourself now. Go watch it and come back to alcaTsar blog to listen to this beautiful song again and again and again.

On a tropical island in the Pacific, a lonely volcano named Uku watches the wildlife creatures frolic with their mates and hopes to find one of his own. He sings a song to the ocean each day for thousands of years, gradually venting his lava and sinking into the water, but does not realize that an undersea volcano named Lele has heard him every day and has fallen in love with him. She emerges on the day that Uku becomes extinct, but her face is turned away and she cannot see him. Uku sinks fully into the ocean, heartbroken, but revives when he hears Lele singing his song to him. His fires re-ignited, he erupts back to the surface, this time face to face with Lele, and the two form a single island where they can be happy together.
