SUMMARY: Two sisters looks back on their lives together and their falling out over a man.
WHY IT’S HERE: ‘Anna & Bella’ by Borge Ring won the Oscar in 1985 and has since deservedly gone down as a classic. The tale of two sisters looking back on their lives together and their falling out over a man, ‘Anna & Bella’ mixes the minimal and the beautiful in Ring’s instantly recognisable style. As he had with his previous ‘Oh My Darling’, Ring mixes pathos and humour to great effect, with wonderfully appealing squash and stretch animation and recognisably human but exaggeratedly cartoonish characters. It is at once his most appealing, coherent and engaging film.
