Animation is fine, but that's it
10 February 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"A Gentlemen's Duel" is an 8-minute animated short film from 10 years ago written and directed by Sean McNally and Francisco Ruiz-Velasco. The title already tells us that it is a British guy and a French guy fighting in this little film for a woman's affection. However, their battle is nothing gentleman-like, so I guess this description really only applies to tea time and courting the woman in here. The animation is fine, but the story really loses its appeal pretty quickly and the ending is also somewhat expected in terms of who gets the girl finally. So yeah, I cannot agree with the awards bodies that honored this short film as I did not find it a memorable watch at all. And I generally love animation, which makes it even more disappointing. Not recommended.
