an unlikely romance
10 January 2008 | by acmelitaSee all my reviews

This is departure from Bill Plympton's usual work, which is not to say that his cadre of fans won't find it equally enjoyable.

It is a charming little film depicting the unlikely romance between a ceiling fan and a potted flower. I know how odd that sounds but this engaging film makes it work. The cute little old lady shown only in silhouette reminds me of my own grandmother. And the sacrifice and twist at the end make for an enjoyable pay-off.

You can get it over at www.Filmporium.com. The $5 DVD also includes the frustrated rodent tale "Gopher Broke" and the appealing short "The Hill Farm".
