“Adorably hand-animated… A quaint, cute and decidedly NOT for children cartoon in the James Thurber vein. A wonderful movie anyone who’s ever experienced dog ownership at its most glorious, and most embarrassing.
—Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
CARRIE RICKEY names MY DOG TULIP one of the TOP TEN FILMS OF THE YEAR andTHE BEST ANIMATED FEATURE OF THE YEAR!
Narrated by Christopher Plummer, the exquisite hand-drawn screen adaptation of J. R. Ackerley’s 1956 memoir chronicles his late-life 15-year relationship with a beloved dog, devoting much attention to her bathroom and mating habits.
—Stephen Holden, New York Times
4. MY DOG TULIP The year’s finest animated movie is a beautifully expressive fantasia based on a memoir about a much-loved Alsatian by crusty Brit J.R. Ackerley (voiced by Christopher Plummer). Imagine if “Marley & Me” had actually been rueful, restrained and sublime. —Kyle Smith, NY Post

“A Charmer. Smart and Engaging. The animation is also fascinating, as this is the first-ever hand-drawn film using no paper, but a computer program allowing the directors to hand-create some 60,000 drawings. All together, it’s the sort of animation we rarely see, and the sort of film that draws us in and, well, practically sit up and beg for more.”
