The 2nd Annual Cinema Touch Awards!

Julien Faddoul

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Cinema touch Awards for 2013.

Here are my favourite cinematic achievements of the year in several categories. Enjoy!

The 2013 Cinema Touch Awards - ANIMATED FILM

Julien Faddoul

5. Monsters University
A breezy sequel about knowing one's self.

4. The Croods
An ecstatic mix of cinematic tropes and the most misunderstood film of 2013.

3. From Up on Poppy Hill
An outstanding example of adolescent delicacy; even those bored by the theme should be riveted by the treatment.

2. Wolf Children
For me, an extremely disturbing and painful experience, but it has haunted me ever since.

1. The Wind Rises
A masterpiece for the ages. Le vent se lève! Il faut tenter de vivre!

Runner Up: Frozen
