one of the best animated shorts of 2011
20 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

A great combination of beautiful artwork, flowing animation and touching (though not maudlin) sentiment!

Unlike many recent animated shorts that attempt to convey a meaningful and philosophical message (but do so perfunctorily and with no true soul or insight), "The Girl and the Fox" contains true emotion. Perhaps humans are not truly as brave and decent as the the girl character, but it is refreshing to see a film that dwells on the idea that we can make positive, self sacrificing choices in life.

Through subtly nuanced facial expressions, the characters convey great emotion and connect powerfully with the viewer.

The film is paced extremely well, with none of the "boring patches" that plague most films, and the motion of the animation is exemplary. The drawings contain exquisitely graceful lines and the characters move with masterful timing. This film will most likely be overshadowed in the Oscars, Annies (and other awards) by predictable, uninspired Pixar and Disney drivel (like "La Luna" and "Ballad of Nessie") but is far superior.
