Mr Hublot is a withdrawn, idiosyncratic character with OCD, scared of change and the outside world. Robot Pet's arrival turns his life upside down: he has to share his home with this very invasive companion.
Alone in her apartment, a beautiful young woman is anxious to play her newest 45rpm record single. And then, as if by magic, much to her surprise, the avid audiophile is transported through time; every time the record skips, a different place awaits her. What a puzzling and magical single.Written by
There are many references to music in the film. A previous clip the directors made for Dutch singer Gers Pardoel is mentioned on a poster. And there is sign from band Happy Campers, who made the song featured in the film. See more »
A short that unfortunately ends just as it gets going
A Single Live, the Netherlands' contribution to the Oscars this year, is the shortest Oscar nominated short film, clocking in at two minutes and length, and unfortunately, that's just a little bit too small to get this short film off the ground. Animated with a pleasant mix of what looks to be stop motion animation and computer animation, the short concerns a woman who finds her record player has the ability to transport her to different moments in her life, all the way from her infancy to her older years. By the time one figures out how this mystery works, the short is already over, and while it features a unique premise, its concision makes for an experience that's slightly forgettable.
Directed by: Joris Oprins.
