Gorgeous.
24 February 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The artwork of this Oscar-nominated animated short is lovely--probably the best of all the animated shorts this year. In particular, the backgrounds are great--and seem inspired by Asian art styles. As for the story, it's not bad but it is the weaker link with this one.

The film is done without words and is the story of creation from the Bible--but coming from the dog's point of view! In some ways, the film SEEMS to say that life was great for man and dog...until woman came into the picture! My daughter didn't like this at all but I am not sure this message was at all intentional. In fact, I'd have been quite happy to see this one win the Oscar--it is very lovely.
