Storyline

A solitary man works in a tall office building. The only moment in his drab life that's out of the ordinary each year seems to be opening the birthday card and gift from his mother. Usually it's a tie, but one year it's an accordion. It goes into the closet with his many ties. A year or two later, he discovers what happens to the papers he processes every day. His discovery sends him first to the building's top floor, then to his closet. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Strange, Solitary, Somber Story
28 August 2010 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Why this was listed under the "humor" of the Animated Express DVD is a bit puzzling because it really isn't funny....not that it isn't entertaining and beautifully drawn, though.

The combination of color and black-and-white make it intriguing, but the color - especially in high-def - is stunning. You are never sure what kind of strange sight you're going to see next in this story even if the tale is somewhat bland.

It all has to do with a solitary man working in an office by himself year after year, and a yearly card and present from his mother. Those two wind up sort of telling the tale by the time it's all done at the end. The story will keep you interested, Mainly, you'll be wondering how is this all tied together and going to end? Recommend, but don't expect a lot of laughs.
