The Sun is the first full-length animation film made entirely by Ayar Blasco (b. 1975, Argentina). The scriptwriter, cartoonist and comic strip author came to fame by making Mercano el Marciano (both an animation film and television series) with Juan Antín. After more than four years' hard work, we now have The Sun.
The protagonists are Checo and Once, two difficult teenagers who live and survive in Buenos Aires. The nuclear explosion with which the action more or less starts turns the world to ashes, bringing incomprehensible social changes. But for Checo and Once, who are used to an uncertain existence, not much changes in this post-apocalyptic world.
Filled with disrespectful language and with an imaginative drawing style, Blasco gives us incomparable and absurd adventures. But all those crude jokes do lead up to a strangely moving conclusion. The Sun is the living proof that there is more than Pixar, manga or European animation art.
