Storyline

Bunny, an elderly rabbit who uses a walker, is in her kitchen one night baking a cake. A photograph from her wedding day is on her wall. A pesky and persistent moth bangs about the kitchen. She shoos it outside, turns off the porch light, and returns to her baking. The moth finds its way back into the kitchen, she bats it with a wooden spoon, and it falls into the mix. She stirs it up, pours the batter into a pan, and pops it into the oven. But the moth isn't done: it has a different mission, turning the oven into a portal, and inviting Bunny on a voyage of reunion. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quite clever but more sombre than funny
1 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An elderly rabbit, widowed after many years of marriage, lives alone in her house. One evening she is baking when she is continually bothered by a moth in her kitchen. However is the moth only there due to her bright light and open window or does it have another purpose?

The Oscar winner from a few years back for best animated short shows today what huge leaps have been made in the field of animation. That is not to say that it is poor but it certainly looks dated despite being only a few years old already.

While the animation may not stack up it is still effective and it is easy to forget you're watching an animated rabbit. I'm not suggesting it looks realistic, only that it is given sufficient character to allow the viewer to forget the technology involved in creating her. The plot is a little sombre but quite thoughtful and encouraging. Given that it is on the Ice Age (I think) DVD viewers may expect it to have that sense of humour, however it is more clever than funny.

It doesn't make a great deal of sense but it is quite nice and it still looks good unless you're expecting it to compete with the most recent CGI creation – in which case it can't and won't. However an interesting short that shows how far the field has come so quickly.
