Decent, but Condie has even better stuff you need to see
17 July 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of several animated short film from Richard Condie I have seen. His films are the reason I rented " Animation Favorites from the National Film Board of Canada", as I knew that two of the selected films were his (the other being the hilarious "The Cat Came Back"). However, not that I have seen it, I find it's not among his best films--mostly because the subject matter wasn't so conducive to his best (and weirdest) stuff.

The film is about a man who is about to play the piano but also seems to want to find some reason not to. Again and again he starts playing and each time he finds some unimportant reason not to. I particularly liked the mouse that appeared in the film--it was rather random and lightened the mood a bit.

A good film--just not a great film from Condie. For one of his best, try "The Big Snit"--it's a riot!
