I have watched this short film twice and I was blown away each time.
It is undeniably brilliant. The sound is fantastic, the animation is amazing and it’s just plain fun to watch.
The film was directed by the French animation collective H5, François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy + Ludovic Houplain. It was presented at the Cannes Film Festival 2009, it opened the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and it won the 2010 Academy Award for best animated short.
I don’t want to give away anything here because discovering what happens is a big part of the fun. Everyone who watches it will take away different things from viewing it.
It is definitely not safe for work, though. The language gets pretty rough at times.
