Visually outstanding, okay story-wise
23 October 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Rosa" is an animated short film from 2011 and runs for 10 minutes roughly. It is, so far, the only filmmaking effort by Spanish director Jesus Orellana, but I guess if you pay that much attention to detail like he did here, it takes forever to make a movie, even if it is just such a short film. Even if I am not the biggest fan of the style, I cannot deny that the animation in here was really impressive. In terms of the story, is is merely an okay watch. Rosa is the the main character and we follow her as she meets other robot creatures in this futuristic world and keeps fighting them. This whole movie actually screams "full feature", so I would not be surprised if we ever see a 90-minute version of this one adapted by Orellana himself at some point. A great watch for sci-fi lovers, a good watch for everybody else. Thumbs up.
