'SIGNS' romantic short film. This 12 minutes speechless film is about a lonely boy who start communicating with a cute girl in next building using written signs and eventually they met each other. Love doesn't always talk, sometimes might be expressed even from a piece of paper. In a world of social networking and cellphone, signs are still powerful as long as they mean a lot. Written by Julfikar R. Fakir

User Reviews

Sort of like "Paperman" before there was "Paperman".
6 May 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

It seems rather odd that Disney received the Oscar for Best Animated Short considering that much of this plot seems inspired by this earlier film, "Signs". See them both--you'll probably see what I mean.

The film is done without verbal dialog. A young man is working in the big city and is feeling alienated and alone. As a result, he seems to be just going through the paces in life. However, one day as he looks out the window of the office where he works, he sees a cute lady in the building next door. And, surprisingly, she draws a little sign and soon they begin conversing and telling jokes from their respective jobs. But, they don't meet in person. What's next? See it and find out for yourself.

This film is excellent because it shows what can be done without dialog. Despite this limitation, the film is quite touching and clever. Very well done and well worth your time...and quite original.
