A bit aged digitally but universal funny story
10 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

I watched this animated film when it came out and found it very funny. This is a domestic story, wife-husband relationship, only grunts and noises, no language spoken. It could be an episode of any couple's relationship, situations that I found real, but presented in a troglodyte past. This short film will especially connect with emotionally available and adult men, who will recognize some of their struggle with women reflected in the story. However, this film is enjoyable per se because it is embedded with an universal pattern of behavior that is mocked in the film.

The animation is quite chunky and unrefined for modern standards regarding quality of the 3D image. However, it suits the troglodyte world it depicts.

This is an unpretentious funny film, and very enjoyable.
