Approved for Adoption Blu-Ray special edition
This is one of those movies that stay with you long after you watch it. I love movies that make you think and look at life in a different way and this movie did that. With its raw emotion add to that humor, and a real life look at adoption and its one of those movies you wont be able to stop thinking about. My hubby did not like the movies. I'm not sure why my only guess was he didn't like the back in forth between real and anime.
This remarkable animated doc traces the unconventional upbringing of the filmmaker Jung Henin, one of thousands of Korean children adopted by Western families after the end of the Korean War. It is the story of a boy stranded between two cultures. The filmmaker tells his story using his own animation intercut with snippets of super-8 family footage and archival film. The result is an animated memoir like no other: clear-eyed and unflinching, humorous and wry, and above all, inspiring in the capacity of the human heart. Special Features:
