This did not win the Oscar in 1984, but I think it should have
20 November 2001 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

Contrary to the summary of the other reviewer, this excellent short did NOT win the Oscar (Charade, another excellent short that year, was the winner) but I think it should have won. An exceptionally beautiful and fascinating animation, the colors are breath-taking and the detail is incredible! A production of the National Film Board of Canada, this is a wonderful short and well worth the efforts to locate. Most highly recommended.
