Considerably emotional carbonic animation
15 April 2005 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

I've just seen Ryan Larkin's "Syrinx" along with other two creations of this brilliant animator, "Street Musique" and "Walking" during the Buenos Aires Festival of Independent Cinema and I must say that this one wasn't as good as the other two, but anyway, the incredible combination between drawings and classical music let you spend 3 minutes of relax and visual amusement. I've felt it pretty much more because previously it was projected the Oscar winner "Ryan", which pays homage to Ryan Larkin, and "Alter Egos", which is the making of Ryan and a biography of him. In conclusion, it's a must see for all the animation adepts, not only this one, but clearly every single Larkin creation.
