Underrated
12 February 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This short isn't so much about plot as it is about a character, and a feeling.

The boy is the centre of the short, and we see the world as he sees it. His town is a victim of the industrial age. The factory is closed and for sale ("à vendre"). The train, taller than the entire town, zooms through without stopping, causing everything to vibrate and fall off the walls. The non-human animals don't fare very well here. Fish get their heads chopped off. Bears are living trophies on the wall.

The act of placing a certain Canadian coin on the track to be flattened by the passing train has unexpected significance.

I think it's wonderful. I found all of this year's Oscar-nominated animated shorts to be 7/10 or 8/10, and this is one of the 8's.
