As the well-organised and disciplined businessman, Mr Swift, waits for the bus on a cloudless spring morning, out of the blue, arrives the most unexpected visitor in the shape of an innocent little blue bird. At first, the already late for work commuter wants to have nothing to do with the troublesome feathery creature; however, what if those two unlikely companions had a mutually beneficial alliance? Would it change their future? Written by Nick Riganas

Funny and Charming
16 May 2006 | by Scrooge-3See all my reviews

This animated short tells the story of an obsessive neatnik waiting for his bus to work when an orphaned baby bird lands on the bench next to him. The man initially resists the attentions of the bird, but eventually becomes its surrogate mother, learning a valuable lesson from the bird. This is a very funny and charming short subject. It is co-produced by Dreamworks and Aardman Animations. The CGI is well done, giving the man and the bird very good facial expressions and mannerisms. There is not a lot of dialog, so the animation is what really carries the load of showing what's going on. This film is a treat for children and adults. I fully expect it will be a strong contender for next year's Academy Award for animated short.
