A delightful cartoon from NFB of Canada
15 September 2000 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

I love this cartoon! It's basically an animated song about a surveyor and the constant irritations caused by blackflies found everywhere. Lots of nice audio and video touches here. Deservedly nominated for a Academy Award. Recommended.
