One of the best movies this century! They capture the experience of love at first sight, writ large. These modern items that we use out of necessity, are made sentimental through the lens of the bleak future of Earth. In the same way Stanton and his Pixar team have told us a deeply personal story about their love of cinema and their vision for animation through the prism of all types of relationships.

Eventually, fingers, legs, clothes, and other characteristics were added until they arrived at the concept of being fetus-like to allow the audience to see themselves in the characters.

However, it is the humans and not the robots who make themselves redundant. It may also be the bleakest, saddest animation I've ever seen although yes, Grave of the Fireflies runs it mighty close.
