Wow do I feel a bit out of step!
13 February 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Wow. After watching FATHER AND DAUGHTER and then reading all the wonderfully positive reviews, I sure feel out of step with most everyone. While I would agree that FATHER AND DAUGHTER is moving as it tries very hard to evoke an emotional reaction, to me it just didn't have the same emotional impact. Was it a good film? Sure. It had lovely music and while the animation was very simple, it did fit the mood well. But I just didn't feel as strongly about the film as everyone else seemed to. In fact, while FATHER AND DAUGHTER received the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film in 2001, I really preferred the super-dark yet graphically superior THE PERIWIG-MAKER. However, I will also be honest and admit that FATHER AND DAUGHTER has a much higher rating and many who reviewed THE PERIWIG MAKER felt it was just too dark and depressing. To each his or her own. Of course, I also think I preferred the other runner up, REJECTED, because at least it elicited an emotional reaction within me. With FATHER AND DAUGHTER, I just felt a bit let down thanks to all the hype.
