A little romantic gem
21 February 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This short tells the simple life of George. He likes to put ships in jars. He likes to sit on the front porch, and look across the street to maybe get a glimpse of Rosemary. Eventually, George will find the power within him to go and meet Rosemary. A very romantic cartoon, with the music well chosen.

I also liked the animation, the way time goes by. (ex. the moon that comes down like it's a vertical blind).

Out of 100, I give it 83. That's good for *** out of **** stars.

Seen in Sudbury, on December 31st, 2002.
