Beautiful short films
8 November 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This is a collection of animated short films that Pixar produced.

I enjoyed a lot of these shorts. I was particularly impressed by "Day and Night" and "La Luna".

For "Day and Night", it tells how people should respect each other's differences and value each other's strengths. I can't quite believe that the animation packs so many universal and fundamental truths in just five minutes.

Despite "La Luna" being just six minutes and thirty seconds long, it already tells a very sweet and adorable story. The story is imaginative, as I have never even imagined that stars have such as effect on the moon. The stars are beautiful, the characters are cute and the story is very sweet. In the space of just a few minutes, it has captured my imagination and my heart.
