Original & Interesting Parable, 18 September 2008
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

Wow, what an original and interesting parable on greed. Even more interesting was the animation. This is the first time I've seen objects on the screen written out, identified, as it were, naming what it was even if obvious. It was different and the drawings of the kids and animals were almost like something you'd see in an educational book if you were in kindergarten or first grade.

Story-wise, two greedy and sadistic cruel-to-animals kids, a British boy and girl, slice open a rabbit and find a small golden "idol." The latter likes to eat but when he does, the food attracts flies or wasps. The little golden idol immediate transforms those annoying insects into jewels, features and ink. The kids are no dummies; they see this and go to work to produce more insect-attracting food. Things escalate beyond belief and......well, suffice to say justice is served, but in a grisly manner.

These animated shorts of late, especially those on these "Animation Show" collections of them on DVD, seem to all feature dark, dark humor. Some people see them as "sick," but I find, as in this effort, that the black humor works.

Written and directed by a man named Run Wrake. Now there's an odd name. The animated short was nominated for two BAFTA awards. This is the only "cartoon" Wrake has done, which is a pity because this was fascinating and shows great imagination.
