It's ten minutes well spent I'd say but nothing too memorable.

'URS': Three Stars (Out of Five)

One of the two films of honorable mention that were shown with the five 2010 Oscar nominated animated short films in their current theatrical run. It was written and directed by Moritz Mayerhofer and is a pretty simple German tale with simplistic animation and little to no dialogue. It's a heartwarming story about a young man named Urs, a bit of brute that's long looked after his elderly mother, that one day decides to move the both of them up a mountain to hopefully a better life. The film is a bit of an adventure, although short, with a sympathetic outcome. There's nothing overly special here, it's ten minutes well spent I'd say but nothing too memorable.
