Very, very sweet
11 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This Canadian cartoon was nominated for the 1988 Academy Award for Best Animated Short. It didn't win since THE MAN WHO PLANTED TREES was such an astounding film, but this doesn't mean the creators have anything to be ashamed of in losing. THE MAN WHO PLANTED TREES is an entirely different style of film--much more like a moving tapestry and at 30 minutes is very different from GEORGE AND ROSEMARY. While much shorter, GEORGE AND ROSEMARY is a very sweet and funny little film about a very lonely but desperately shy man (George) who imagines having a wonderful life with his neighbor (Rosemary) but he's just too shy to ask her out on a date. Watching his dreams and seeing his desperation is quite touching and you really can't help but care for the guy even though he's only a cartoon character--this makes this excellent film making.

The art work is pretty simple but effective for the style of film that it is. The narrator, Cec Linder, sounded an awful lot like Judd Hirsch and the combination of his voice and the music really helped set the mood for this piece.

Overall, while not the very best cartoon of the year, it was amazing and cute. I've seen it a couple times and loved it both times--I'm sure you will, too.
