Storyline

Surreal, offbeat short film about a cockroach who falls in love with the woman whose apartment he infests. They play beautiful duets on their violin and accordion, only to be interrupted by Josephine's brutish exterminator husband, Moe. And so Roach devises a plan: he crawls into Moe's brain and gains control of his higher functions. Manipulating Moe like a three hundred pound sock puppet, Roach woos Josephine. Written by Anonymous

A woman- Josephine - and a cockroach. An unlikely pairing, but I love the story. I could not guess how the writers were going to bring it to a conclusion.

Nicely crafted and animated. I'm a musician, so I liked that aspect. I was afraid it was going to get too dark for me, but I was not disappointed with the story line. It is a little tricky to make a relationship between a human (well, an animated human) and an insect seem plausible, but something pulls at your heartstrings and you can't help but pull for the cockroach, despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles he faces. (I would like to know a little back story on the cockroach. How did he some by his violin playing skills?) A nice effort and worth watching.
