Storyline

A lonely scarecrow tries to befriend a group of birds without success, and he can't understand why they don't want to approach him. A blind wounded crow falls at his feet and the scarecrow takes care of it; through the bird he learns why the crows are afraid from scarecrows. After learning the news, he walks to his owner's house in the middle of the night, wakes him up, and asks him to give him another job. Little does he know that such an innocent request will bring what follows upon him. Written by GitanillaOZ

Good Film: Only Themes - No Spoilers
1 April 2013 | by (NJ-NY, USA) – See all my reviews

La leyenda del espantapájaros remains a perfectly crafted short-film, worthy of all awards won. WATCH / BUY this short ten minute animated film (English sub-title versions exist)… Summary (with absolute minimal spoilers / will not ruin your experience): The film's protagonist is a "living & feeling" Scarecrow, created by man; with a pre-defined purpose only to scare birds. However, his worldly duty conflicts with his friendly personality, which results in loneliness. He eventually befriends a blind crow, to forge a bond and friendship reciprocated, well beyond the Scarecrow's existence...

The heart of this film remains solely in its story: which combines complex elements, morals and themes of Classic Mythology, Aesop, Brothers Grimm, Mary Shelley, Shel Silverstein, etc. – all presented in simple narrative, easily understood by both children* and adults alike.

*Note for Children: It remains a dark tale / not meant for all: A story whose themes' grows finer and expands: with age, experience and wisdom…. As previously posted: All visuals / animations are in the vein of a dark and enchanting Burton-esque film. Yet, no single element remains directly lifted, nor is comparable.
