OCD sufferer Mr Hublot lives in a frightening, fully automated world from which he hides, working from home. One day he spies an abandoned robot dog about to be crushed with the garbage and rescues it. The dog makes Mr Hublot very happy but it grows to an enormous size, forcing Mr Hublot to embrace a welcoming change as they move to larger premises. Written by

One of the five 2014 Oscar nominated animated short film is this 11 minute sci-fi tale, about an introvert scared of the outside world (in the future) who brings a robot dog into his home and has his life drastically changed by it (for the first time). It was directed by Laurent Witz and Alexandre Espigares and written by Witz. The short contains no voice actors as Hublot (the only human character) never speaks. I definitely found it to be one of the best nominees (for animated short this year) and felt like it's something the filmmakers could easily expand on in multiple more movies. Witz and Espigares do a great job of creating an entire new futuristic universe (for just an 11 minute short) and I really liked the simple tale of a shy insecure guy finding happiness with a friend for the first time (reminds me of the bond I have with my cat). Definitely worth seeing!
