Affable fable
4 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

You're really going to like this one. It sounds very strange, and it is, a creature crawls out of the sand, fashions other creatures, and they make a castle out of the sand for themselves. But for me it is a parable of diversity, inclusivity, and working together. It is also about the transitory nature of existence. It's incredibly fun, and it made me smile even though I'm sad at the moment. The soundtrack is well done too. The wry, humoured look on the first creature's face makes me giggle a bit, and I'm very serious.

Oh yeah, it won an Oscar for Best Animated Short, and I'm sure the team behind it were richly deserving.
