Storyline

It's 4 a.m. in a European village. Small shadows are at mischievous play. One of their number stands apart, melancholy. He climbs to a rooftop in the moonlight and sees one window lit. He investigates. An old man dozes and a candle burns by the window. The flame smiles at him. He tries to touch her and is singed. Is this the end of the encounter or can metaphysics and desire work a small miracle? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Beauty and the beast
30 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

I saw this at the 2006 Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films as part of the Once Upon A Time Program. This is a cinematically beautiful film from Ireland and director/writer Kealon O'Rourke. This is a computer animated short in the artistic style of great Disney animated classics like Fantasia. A dance-like motion of fantasy creatures frolic among the sweeping city vistas in this Gothic tale of fleeting love. Before sunrise the creatures of the night are most active before they give way to the day and shadow creatures abound in their carefree nocturnal mischief. Another creature of the night is the flame of candle burning in an upper story window. She is burning later than usual as her master as fallen asleep and she catches the eye of one of the night shadows. They certainly aren't compatible but he catches her eye too. Beautiful look to this and a nice little story. I would give this a 9.5 out of 10.
