touching
29 January 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Every girl father knows this challenge. And, after his measure, he solves "the delicate problem". This short animation is not just a solution but a touching portrait of parenthood. A film about family, seductive for children, more moving for adults, absolutely beautiful and imaginative. So, just a great short film, with seductive storytelling and beautiful drawings and music and...cat.
