Lu Over the Wall

A confusing, charming mess of a takeoff on The Little Mermaid, Lu Over the Wall is several different films vying for attention, all of them various degrees of good. If you could, just for a minute, imagine what would happen if a Miyazaki film was rammed through a Looney Tunes filter, and I’m talking about a Bob Clampett/Tex Avery brand of free associative lunacy here, with a dash of rock and rol... read more

Lu Over the Wall

“A confusing, charming mess of a takeoff on The Little Mermaid, Lu Over the Wall is several different films vying for attention, all of them various degrees of good. If you could, just for a minute, imagine what would happen if a Miyazaki film was rammed through a Looney Tunes filter, and I’m talking about a Bob Clampett/Tex Avery brand of free associative lunacy here, with a dash of rock and roll movie and coming-of-age story as garnishes. Picture this, and you’ll come very close to approximating the chaotic reverie that is Lu Over the Wall.   The problem isn’t that director Masaaki Yuasa is lacking in ideas, but that he’s got too many of them buffeting against each other at any given time.

"The English dub of this premiered at the BFI, and the fact that it was dubbed was presented as "bad news", as well as that it had a few edits, but the "good news" was that it was mostly unedited. However, it was heavily edited and reanimated. Lu had a much deeper backstory, the story was relocated to a more industrial town, and new jokes included a video-game-quality-CG slam on The Shape of Water. In fact, the BFI had so much fun with this full house of a showing that they paused it during a fad"
