Storyline

This funny short animation was written and created by Tali (At Home with Mrs. Hen) and is inspired by the filmmaker's misadventures as a school bus driver in the Eastern Townships. Our protagonist dreams of becoming a bus driver in order to cruise down quiet country lanes and connect with nature, her young charges and their parents. But her idyllic view of her new job is sorely tested after she meets her surly boss, named Killer, and discovers that winding roads can prove treacherous in winter, especially with a faulty clutch. Through her cheeky humour and oblique look at the reality of people living in the Quebec countryside, Tali delivers a film that is unique, witty and touching. Written by NFB

While the animation isn't great, I really liked this one.
8 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Bus Story" is my favorite of the commended films. I'll be very honest, however, the art style is very crude and looks rather poor compared to all the other films shown at this special presentation. But, it manages to be very entertaining and clever--and a bit dark in places. I really enjoyed it though my daughter thought I was crazy because she didn't enjoy it very much. My best friend also wasn't so taken by this one as much as I was. I guess I just enjoyed the quirky style of the movie as it told a likable story about a person who always wanted to be a school bus driver...and learns it's not quite as much fun as she'd assumed it would be. I'd love to know what you think.
