Storyline

Private Donald Duck is on a long, long training march, growing steadily more exhausted. Finally, they reach their camp location, and despite Donald's desire for dinner, he follows orders to pitch his tent first. He finally gives up on the tent as night falls. But as he tries to get to sleep, the loud shoring of the other soldiers forces him to bury his head. Finally, he gets to sleep, just as reveille sounds and the march continues.

Feeling sympathy for poor Donald...
2 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

Fall Out-Fall In doesn't see Donald getting easily frustrated, temperamental or annoyed and the situations going on around him, which is where his personality is at his best. But we do feel sympathy for him, an approach that has either worked or hasn't, and luckily it does work here. And this sympathy isn't mild or anything, we genuinely feel for him and can really identify with this situation. Fall Out-Fall In with or without this is still a quite outstanding short. The animation is very detailed and beautifully coloured, with the backgrounds particularly evocative. The music has a lot of character and the orchestration is very creative without overpowering. There are some neat gags, mainly revolving around Donald and too many noises. Seeing as I'm having problems with noisy neighbours at night at the moment, I can definitely relate to Donald's trouble with sleeping through all the noise. Donald marching through the seasons is another nice touch, we also feel sympathy for him here and that is not because the short is telling us to. All in all, outstanding and while Donald is against his usual persona he and his situations evoke genuine sympathy. 10/10 Bethany Cox
