Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy?
The film is an attempt at presenting the extraordinarily interesting figure of Noam Chomsky, as well as his intriguing yet complicated scientific theories. Michel Gondry decided on an unusual move; he does not simply have a fascinating and frank conversation with the scholar, he also embellished it with fantastic animations which excellently portray what Chomsky is talking about. Owing to this, his ideas become much more understandable and approachable for the viewer. As a result, the film transforms into a real visual and intellectual feast, and its title is a conscious and somewhat ironic play referring to Chomsky's linguistic theory.
