A nerdy man goes on a blind date to a restaurant. The place is great and the girl is beautiful. If only the two sides of his brain (seen here as two tiny creatures running the brain's command center) could work together for once.
While this might possibly offend some Hindus, it is a lovely film...
This is an amazingly pretty piece of computer generated animation. What surprised me about this is that it was directed by Konstantin Bronzit--a Russian animator who has long used traditional hand-drawn cartoons. It's a pretty radical departure making a CGI film and I was very impressed that the quality was amazingly good.
Before I begin, I should point out that there are probably a lot of Hindus out there that would be offended by this cartoon. After all, the god Shiva (one of the holiest and most revered of the the gods in Hinduism) is the subject of this humorous cartoon! Keep this in mind before you decide to watch it.
The film shows Shiva in a very traditional representation--in bronze and standing within a circle of bronze flames. Suddenly, a fly lands on Shiva's arm--one of many arms to be exact. Slowly, the bronze statue comes alive and swats the fly--missing again and again and eventually smashing the bronze circle. It's all pretty dry but very funny. I liked it and was impressed by the effort. Too bad they had to pick on Shiva--especially since according to Hindu lore, this is NOT a god to offend!
