Cosmic Candy: Fantasia 2020 review

This Greek entry starts with floating dream, continues into mundane reality. Anna is obsessed with a sweet called cosmic candy. A sort of pop rocks. When she eats them it's the only time she smiles. Anna is timid. Her phobias seem to stem from losing her father. She's not good with  people, socializing, men or even having a conversation with a neighbor. She's a bit of a recluse.

Until a fearless, wild eyed child drops randomly into her life. Neurotic, anxious, and suppressed Anna has met her match in Persa, a 10 year old ball of energy. Comfort zones become non existent as youthful energy fills Anna's life with chaos. This is a good thing as Anna is clearly wound up tight. The ensuing relationship between the two young women continues into an adventure of revelation, facing fears and fantasy, & into an eventual conclusion. Mental wellness is touched upon but not hammered as the prime message. I think the main goal of the movie is to present that life doesn't need to be as hard as we make it. The details of the past aren't important. And that encouragement and strength can come from outside your environment.
