Wonderful

Saw this on the great SBS program 'Shorts On Screen', and this is definitely one of the best shorts I've seen so far on this series. The story centres on Berni, who works in a cat food factory and lives alone in a run-down apartment. Like his repetitive job, his life is like an assembly line. Wake up, drive to work, do his eight hours, drive home, watch TV, and go to bed. One day Berni sees a commercial advertising female torsos as the perfect companion. Selling his car, Berni buys an African 'model', which promptly arrives on his doorstep. What follows is a beautifully realised look at what it means to be treated as an equal and with respect, and just being treated like an object. There is no dialogue, but writer/director Yann Jouette brilliantly takes us on an emotional journey in a very short period of time. His message is clear without being heavy-handed. The animation is stunning, making Berni and the world in which he lives both vivid and incredibly stylish.
