An old man lives a lonely life under the dark shadows of industrial smog. One day he receives a mysterious package which gives him the ability to change his environment. "Delivery" is a surreal story about the change of a corrupt world. It combines a political message with individual 3D designs and a strong, emotional soundtrack. Written by
The story, such as it is, isn't really the reason to see DELIVERY. I'll summarize its anti-industrialization message and then get on to what was exceptional about the film.
An old man lives in an industrial nightmare of a city and suddenly he's given an odd package. Inside is the ability to make the city all over any way he wishes. And so he makes everything pretty and back to nature--but no mention is made as to what happened to all the other people (were they killed?) or how he expects to live like anything other than a caveman without some industrialization.
However, these questions mar the film's strengths--which certainly aren't the story. Instead, the short film has one of the best and most dramatically moving sound tracks I've ever heard from a short. And, while not quite as dramatic, the CG effects are superb. A lovely film to look at with a weak and rather fairy tale-like and simplistic message.
