The sad, strange life of Harvie, who is born into an impoverished Middle European existence, and whose one constant is the book of "fakts" he keeps adding to, worn around his neck. After a childhood tragedy, he emigrates to Australia, where he has a succession of menial jobs, eventually ending up in a retirement home. Along the way, he has a string of bad luck, leaving him with, among other things, a steel plate in his skull that becomes a magnet. Written by

I rented the DVD out last week to watch the film that made Australia proud by winning that shiny gold Oscar.
This movie was short, it was only twenty minutes, but in that twenty minutes you become part of the little soul that is Harvie Krumpet, the animation was done by stop motion/claymation (which is tedious, trust me I study animation). The story is funny and sad at the same time and I promise you, once you watch it they'll be only 'one song' you'll be singing!
And you feel engaged in the film thanks to the great narration done by Geoffrey Rush, he has one of those powerful voices.
I rate this movie 10/10 and recommend it to everyone and anyone studying animation.
