Lost in execution

"The Man in the Lower-Left Hand Corner of the Photograph" may be a 13-minute short film, but it must have one of the longest film titles of the year 1997. Next year, it will have its 20th anniversary. The writer and director here is Robert Morgan and it's a British production. Don't worry though: If you don't speak English, it is no problem as there is no spoken language in here. Oh wait, then how did you understand my last sentence and this review in general??? Anyway, after reading this film's plot summary I thought this could turn out a nice and emotionally investing film, but sadly it did not. I personally did not like the animation style of the characters as well as the objects. This may have fit a horror film nicely, but it's not working for a sob story at all. Morgan was only in his early 20s when he shot this film, his rookie project, quite a while before his BAFTA nod, so I can forgive him for not being at his very best here yet. Nonetheless, I have to give it a thumbs-down. Not recommended.
