Creative and unique
11 January 2017 | by (Planet Earth) – See all my reviews

This looks like one of those YouTube shows where people teach you how to cook any given recipe. In this case, a spaghetti dish. The cooking procedures and ingredients used in this film are those you can expect in a spaghetti dish, but no real ingredient is used. Those are replaced but daily-life objects that have some resemblance with the ingredients to be used (in shape, texture or color), from the boiling water, to the salt+pepper on top.

The animation is basic but very effective. What stands out to me is the creativity in the selection of the objects and ingredients of the recipe. It makes one think of the objects that surround our daily life, of how much we take for granted their shapes, colors and textures.

This is a quite enjoyable short film. No story, or just a cooking recipe story, but the approach is quite inventive, fresh and humorous and, I really loved it.
