Short version of the Titanic
29 January 2005 | by LeRoyMarkoSee all my reviews

Another good short animated by the National Film Board of Canada. In her 3rd floor apartment, a woman works on a miniature version of the Titanic. She takes a bath with it. In the apartment below her, a man is hosting a dinner with members of a string quartet. And they play music. The kind of music that was probably playing on the famous boat before it sank. Back on the 3rd floor, there's a leak. It will get to the point that the chandelier downstairs will just fall, like the ones in the Titanic after the encounter with the iceberg. But the ending brings doubt. What to make of it? That is the question...

Seen at home, on January 25th, 2005.

81/100 (***)
