brilliant slightly macabre claymation
11 October 2003 | by (rotterdam, netherlands) – See all my reviews

Hasta los huesos is one of the best shorts i have ever seen, (faintly reminiscent of the earlier wallace & gromit, but then darker and better), the story apart from it being very entertaining, has precisely that macabre and authentic mexican touch (with a very nice musical scene with a twist with the mexican classic song 'la llorona' in it) that makes it a hidden treasure and goes way beyond the stuff pixar, disney and those other big animation studios produce that are socalled 'also fun for adults'.
