SHORT REVUE: Vibrant and fresh for all audiences
4 December 2014 | by OJTSee all my reviews

This 13 minutes animated short film is well deservedly nominated for an Academy Award. The film is fresh and vibrant and suitable for both children and grown ups. Told in a light and funny way, the story has a great punch. It even has a great message for those being parents in more than one way.

The drawn lines are crisp, the colors are vibrant and the storytelling is compelling. The freshness is best compared with the greatest animators, not to mention the best Chinese, however there's undoubtedly a clear Scccandinavian feel to the whole production.

A girl narratively tells about her upbringing as one of three daughters of a marriage between an architect and an interior architect, and the consequences this might lead to for those environmentally affected by this. The three sisters wishes for a bicycle, and eventually they are promised one. But it turns out differently than expected.

Director Torill Kove has done it again, after receiving Oscar for her last animated short movie about the Danish story teller H.C. Andersen. It wouldn't surprise many if this film turns up as a second winner for Kove. It's that good!
