Storyline

A Charles Bukowski poem is put to animation. Four kids who are friends are drawn to a strange house that their parents tell them to avoid. One day they see a man of about 30 step outside, cigar and whiskey bottle in hand. He becomes a symbol for them of all that is strong, natural, and beautiful. What happens later to this man with the beautiful eyes introduces the boys to the gray and uptight world of adulthood that awaits them. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Haunting and intriguing.

This is a very effective and compelling short that looks a perception, in this case perception through the eyes of children. Using very basic and deceptively simple hand-drawn animation (incorporating some very entertaining visual tricks along the way) this tells, in effect, two stories: the story the children see and the probable reality the audience may well ascertain from the same "facts". A bit like Rashomon, but with only one recounting onscreen. Deservedly won a BAFTA, if I recall correctly. Well worth tracking down. Most recommended.
