Up is a film created by Pixar in 2009 and was directed by Pete Docter. The film is based on an old man trying to move his house to fulfil his deceased wife's childhood dream.
I rather enjoyed the film. However I didn't see how it was supposed to be completely tear jerking at the beginning. Kinda guessed something bad would happen. Although I thought at first when in his childhood he was standing outside the bordered up house that it was because his parents had left him. After the beginning though the film was rather hilarious. I also find it rather interesting that Pixar give hints to what is about to happen. Certain objects are placed in the beginning of the film so they don't 'suddenly' appear towards the end.
