Storyline

What would happen if a 150.000-tonnes meteorite hit you? Sadly, this is precisely what has happened to the demure Henri Debrus, forcing himself to detach from his body at a specific and constant 91-centimetre distance apart. Undoubtedly, his predicament sounds improbable or even tragic and funny at the same time, nevertheless, let us see how would you cope with this complex day-to-day problem if your existence was mocked by every physical law. Just imagine it. It's not funny. Written by Nick Riganas

Inspiring and sad
26 December 2012 | by rockiwiSee all my reviews

This movie is truly inspiring! It's depressive, though. But definitely worth seeing. I actually like the animation style. Original and appropriate for the story. However, it's not a children's animation. It's mature, it's sad.

I would have expected a false sophistication of the movie from the beginning - but it's not like this. It has depth, it is creative and clever. The saddest thing is how he is only one who sees himself as he is and no one understands his condition. But he keeps fighting it. Just like everyone else in some way. And of course, the end is heartbreaking as I almost shed a tear.

Certainly underrated.

Conclusion: You must see it!! This is without doubt among the best short animation films I have ever seen.
