A beautiful film
8 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One by One is a fine example of artistic film-making. There is no dialog in this short, but the commentary is clear none-the-less. The music, which is reminiscent of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, is perfectly set to the story, which highlights the grace of the human spirit, even in the worst of circumstances. The children in the film find ways to celebrate life amidst the backdrop of oppression and abject poverty. The lighting and special effects easily transport the viewer to the fields of Africa, creating an unforgettable ambiance. My children also loved it, and made up their own lyrics to the African chanting so they could sing along. This is one of the best shorts I've seen in a very long time. It's too bad this film never got a theatrical release, as it would have garnered Disney a Best Oscar nomination, if not the award itself.
