Historia de un oso (2014)

*** (out of 4)

Good animated short from Chilean filmmaker Gabriel Osorio Vargas about an elderly bear who tells his life story with the help of a mechanical diorama.

HISTORIA DE UN OSO, also known as BEAR STORY, was one of five animated shorts that received an Oscar nomination and it's easy to see why so many people have fallen in love with the film. I'm not going to say I loved it because I honestly didn't but I could see why so many people did. The animation itself isn't the greatest out there but for the most part I found the story to be quite touching and it's certainly a unique way to tell a story.
