Movie recommendation: April and the Extraordinary World Official Trailer

Yesterday I watched the steampunk cartoon April and the Extraordinary World Official Trailer, which I didn’t know anything about, except for the briefest description (approximately the same as the trailer shows). It was a great movie, which not only had an interesting plot and universe, but also didn’t spoon-feed you the plot, but instead trusted you to draw the relevant connections.

One interesting fact about the movie, is that the art-style is based on Jacques Tardi, who is a brilliant artist, but whose style tend to turn me off when it comes to graphic novels. This wasn’t the case for this movie, however – perhaps because the lines are more clean that if they had actually been drawn by Tardi.
