In eight minutes, animator Bill Plympton gives us 24 vignettes: seven are clearly about sex, 10 about violence, and seven others deal with human frailties, particularly the body as it ages.... See full summary »
Clever and mildly entertaining short from Plympton shows us the point of view of a tree throughout its life. The film gives us various vignettes dealing mostly with sex and violence. Those expecting anything too graphic will probably be disappointed as everything here is pretty mild and especially when you compare it to other films by the cult director. For the most part the short kept me entertained but at the same time I felt we had seen this stuff too many times before and with better results. The entire thing is pretty clever and we get some great moments including the stuff with the moles but overall I just didn't laugh as much as with other films from the director. It's certainly worth viewing at least once but I'd check out some of the classics first.
