The idea that this was when the great provocateur discovered compassion is a touch simplistic, but Simˇ expresses it through elegant storytelling.

With its dust and sherry-toned colour palette and starkly angular character design, it will intrigue animation fans.

As a"making of" movie, however, it's instantly gratifying and easily comparable with Les Blank's Fitzcarraldo film Burden of Dreams.

Labyrinth of the Turtles is a charming and occasionally moving love letter to the legendary Spanish-Mexican surrealist, and at a spry 80 minutes, doesn't outstay its welcome.

An engaging if somewhat demure animation, bordering occasionally on a kind of gentle sentimentality that is inimical to the subject...

At its heart, the film tells an incredibly touching - and altogether unexpected - human story. Entertaining and educational in equal parts, Simˇ's animated film is one you don't want to skip.

By confining itself to a certain slice of life, it becomes a solid and considerate effort, almost soothing in its treatment of the celebrated director's inner troubles and external obstacles. Definitely a film to watch.

Bu˝uel In The Labyrinth Of The Turtles is also worth watching in its own right and one hopes that it will draw more attention to this important piece of cinematic history.

It's a curio for the completist, but not an unworthy one.

It's not necessary to know anything about surrealism, Bu˝uel's influential work or 20th-century Spanish politics to appreciate the underlying coming-of-age story of a privileged young man learning to value the human lives around him.

It reveals a Bu˝uel consumed with jealousy of Dali, insistent that he is the preeminent Spanish surrealist, as well as obsessed with death, morbidly so when it comes to the animals of the mountainous northern territory.
