Storyline

On a moonlit fall night, a priest races to the home of Mr. Moulin running a motorcycle off the road and arriving just in time to catch the old man as he falls from a chair on which he stacked books in order to reach a bottle of cognac. Mr. Moulin is a miser with a sock full of money that the priest would like to appropriate by selling the old man a space capsule that will take him to paradise. After a test drive and some negotiation, the deal may be struck, but then, there's a knock at the door. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

This French animated short highly deserved its Oscar nomination from yesterday
23 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Meme les pigeons vont au paradis is one of five Oscar-nominated films in the Best Animated Short category. In this entry from France, an old man with a red bag of lots of gold coins is visited by a priest who tells him to sign something in order to insure his entry into heaven. He also brings a machine that gives the old man a "preview" of what the afterlife will look like. I'll stop there and mention that there are many amusing characteristics in the short's brief running time that abounds in the dialogue exchange between the two characters. And the way the whole thing ends is a hilarious shocking surprise! This was an excellent short that highly deserves it's important nomination that was announced yesterday. If if wins, I'd be very glad indeed!
