Some interesting artwork...but not a particularly compelling film
The film consists of various people walking and they are drawn in a variety of ways. As you see cartoons walk or outlines of people or sketches, music accompanies their every move. There really isn't anything more to the film.
WALKING was nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Short but in this day and age, I doubt if this would be possible. That's because the quality of the animation and stories has risen dramatically over the last decade or two and a pure art film like WALKING probably wouldn't be noticed. Sure, it has some lovely animation here and there, but this isn't consistent. Plus, there really is no plot to the film and even though it's only five minutes long, I have a hard time imagining people sticking with it to the end--I know I had to struggle. In many ways, it looks like an art house film and not much more.
