This French animated short highly deserved its Oscar nomination from yesterday, 23 January 2008
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

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!
