Storyline

The cycle of life. A boy whose father is a pilot imagines that his toy plane becomes the real thing, allowing him to fly side-by-side through the heavens with his father. He takes off from a tree house overlooking the sea and his father's landing strip. Their flight is graceful and full of adventure. Then, we watch the boy grow, study, marry, father a child, and become, himself, a grandfather. Holding a toy plane, he takes his grandchild to the same cliff from whence his own imagination took off years before. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A beautiful Short film
7 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

I highly recommend imago, its one this short animation movies that really able to reach your feelings and touch your heart. the style of the drawings is very simple and yet very expressive the backgrounds seems like paintings, the choice of colors are brilliant the best thing that in this movie that adds to the other elements is the sound, it plays the great role in get the feelings to you, the music is just magical.

the downside of the movie or maybe its not exactly a downside is the story and the plot around which the film is based, the film maybe captivating when it comes to visuals but the story could be seen as simple yet we can also think of this simplicity as powerful thing. anyway I think you should now go and watch it, it worth the 10 minutes
