I’m not usually captivated by animated films as I generally feel they lack some sort of interconnectivity on an emotional level. This short-film by William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg, however, changed my mind. It is a beautifully created, touching, meaningful example of cinema that brought tears to my eyes in the final sequence. Not bad for a silent film.
Those of you who love books as much as I do, here’s a little thematically relevant something to watch over your morning coffee or afternoon tea.
Apparently it has been nominated for an Oscar. I hope it wins.
And I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
(It gets better and better; don’t give up at the beginning.)
