Lavatory-Lovestory is a quite entertaining Russian animated short that just got an Oscar nomination
26 January 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

I just found this Oscar-nominated short animated film on YouTube as linked from Mayerson on Animation. Originally from Russia, Lavatory-Lovestory is a funny and touching tale of a woman in a box office-where men going to the restrooms put coins in the former mayonnaise jar while on their way to relieve themselves-reads a newspaper called "Happy Woman" and sees picture after picture of romantic couples coupling and wishes she was in the same boat. She also cleans the restrooms while skating on brushes. When she puts the paper down one day, she finds flowers put in the money jar. When getting rid of said flowers, other ones appear when she gets back. It's at this point that this woman looks in both the restrooms and outside the terminal for the mysterious man...Like I said, this animated short was both touching and humorous and the line-drawings on white background adds an entertainingly distinct touch to the proceedings. Nothing more to say except that I very much highly recommend this quite entertaining Russian animated short Lovatory-Lovestory!
