Great short
28 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

It's a short movie and I will keep this review as short as IMDb permits.

I saw this before Wreck-it Ralph, make sure to be on time so you don't miss it.

When you consider all the crap Disney delivers on television, it's a surprise to be completely swept away by this beautiful little b/w movie.

Not one single word is said, the stunning visuals and appropriate music do all the talking.

It reminded me of the beginning of Pixars "Up", without the bittersweet tone.

Too bad for the business model, people can fold the merchandise themselves for this one. But please Disney, take more risks like this.
