Funny minimalistic animation
13 March 2013 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

"Somewhere in the Arctic", along with "A story" is one of the first animations done by Andrew Stanton, the director of the successful Pixar films "Finding Nemo" and "WALL•E".

In my opinion, this was a fairly enjoyable minimalistic short, which echoes some of the elements present in several slapstick cartoons from the Golden Age of Animation. Even when the result isn't at the same level of Stanton's masterpieces, "Somewhere in the Arctic", is still pretty satisfying, having a neat animation style and being very funny to watch. It also has a very nice song: "My Girl", by The Temptations.

8.5/10
