Storyline

At the central square of a picturesque Italian village, a bright-eyed little girl is anxious to toss her last gold coin in the fountain to make a wish, while a talented one-man-band street performer plays a cheerful tune. But just when the girl is ready to drop her coin in the busker's rusty cup, another flamboyant contestant steps in, desirous of her attention. Inevitably, this is going to be a music showdown like none other, nevertheless, the coin is only one. Written by Nick Riganas

Great Short ! ~
4 September 2007 | by ichocolatSee all my reviews

The short is so wonderful! I can not remember in what movie this short is in, but even now I can still remember the short. The graphics is superb, with great attention to details to the characters and scenery. Kudos Pixar! Even thought he short is very short (thus the term short, d'oh), it is very entertaining. When I watched his short in the cinema, the crowd enjoyed this short very much that the cinema roared with laughter. It almost felt like watching your favorite team scored a goal in a football game.

This is an experiment by Pixar. There are other shorts made by the animation giant like the short about a group of birds sitting on an electric wire, and another short about a bear (or is a penguin? Sorry, can't remember what it is actually) wanting to and find his girlfriend but ended up trapped in the snow globe. Both are two examples of the shorts made. Sorry though, because I forgot both the titles to the shorts I mentioned above.
