Writer-director Charlie Kaufman's "Anomalisa" is a stop-motion animation film shot with puppets that's full of laughs, tenderness and more than a touch of the surreal.With an explicit sex scene between two of the puppets about halfway through, the film, which is competing for the Venice Film Festival's Lion d'Or prize, won't be one for the whole family.Kaufman, who wrote the screenplays for "Being John Malkovich" and "The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," has not been a presence in the cinema since he made his directorial debut with the highly regarded but quirky "Synecdoche, New York" (2008).He is making his return with this 90-minute film focusing on Michael, a motivational speaker who flies into Cincinnati from Britain on a soul-sapping business trip.The film, which won favourable reviews at the Telluride Film Festival, where it was shown before an official premiere in Venice, is voiced by only three people.Kaufman allowed that identity, for him, identity a tricky business.
