Coraline by Bruno Coulais( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in German and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dark and creepy film about family relationships directed by Henry Selick of Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach fame, Coraline is based on the haunting book Coraline by Neil Gaiman. The first stop-motion feature shot in stereoscopic 3-D, Coraline features big-headed, stick-bodied animated characters with huge eyes and demonic grins set against menacing backgrounds and an undercurrent of spooky music. Coraline is a teenager who has just moved to an old house in the middle of nowhere with her writer parents and she is bored, bored, bored. Her only companions are an annoyingly talkative boy Wybie (short for Why Born), some eccentric neighbors from the theater and circus, and a strange, button-eyed doll with a marked resemblance to Coraline which Wybie found in an old trunk of his grandmother's. When Coraline finds an old door hidden behind an armoire and papered over with wallpaper, she convinces her mother to unlock it, only to find a wall of bricks. When Coraline revisits the door later that night, the bricks magically disappear and she discovers a strange pathway to another world where everything is just what she wishes for. In stark contrast to the real world where Coraline's parents just don't have time for her, her "Other Mother" and "Other Father" in this alternate world are the perfect loving, attentive parents who anticipate her every need and desire. Initially comforted and quite happy in this new world, suspicion that things may not be quite as they seem grows inside Coraline and her disquiet is furthered by the mute "Other Wybie" and a strange-talking cat that seems to move between both worlds. Eventually, Coraline discovers some dark secrets about her "other parents" and the seemingly perfect "other world," but it may be too late for her to escape back to the real world. Teri Hatcher is especially effective in her dual (voice) role as Mom and "Other Mom" and Dakota Fanning also gives a great performance as Coraline. Coraline is a disturbing, intriguing film that both captivates and frightens. (Ages 11 and older)

Résumé: Conte fantastique réalisé à l'aide de figurines animées. Les monstres, les vampires, les fantômes et autres sorcières de la ville d'Halloweentown célèbrent leur fête annuelle durant laquelle ils s'amusent à faire peur aux humains. Mais le squelette Jack s'avoue un peu désabusé par ces réjouissances lugubres qui se répètent d'une année à l'autre. Lors d'une promenade en forêt, il découvre un arbre qui donne accès au royaume de Noël. À la fois enthousiasmé et déconcerté par cette fête joyeuse et colorée, Jack décide d'y participer activement. Il fait donc kidnapper Santa Claus pour prendre sa place et met tous ses concitoyens à contribution pour préparer une fête de Noël aux accents résolument halloweenesques. [(c) Médiafilm] .
