Ninjababy (2021)

Yngvild Sve Flikke’s Norwegian pregnancy comedy is fresh, funny, and feminist, with the year’s most unlikely animated hero at its heart.

Kate Erbland, IndieWire

Ninjababy’s versatile lead has a knack for making constant chaos seem commonplace. The variety of animation styles, ranging from inky sketches layered over everyday walls to a claymation-style snapshot of life in utero, also have the same effect. Funny, forthright and eclectic, this repeatedly perceptive film takes life’s messiness in its stride.
