So fun and entertaining
4 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

This Oscar nominated animated short is about the fight between a reaper and a doctor for the life of an old lady.

In just a space of 7 minutes of actual story, it manages to pack a touching scene and numerous totally hilarious chases. The plot is effectively presented without the use of any dialogs. The initial scene is powerful, and I feel sorry for the old lady at once even it is just a minute into the short. The rest of the animation is so imaginative, every second of it is so much fun. The fast pace and crispy delivery of the plot ensures there is something going on every second of the animation. It's hard to make a short film so entertaining, but "The Lady and the Reaper" is wildly successful in doing so. "The Lady and the Reaper" is unexpectedly fun and entertaining. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to others.
