Very nice...
6 February 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This Russian film is thoroughly enjoyable and done with traditional hand-drawn animation--something too often overlooked in this era of CGI. Like "Bear Story" it's told without words, so it can be enjoyed by anyone who likes a good cartoon.

This short is a homage to the Russian cosmonauts who bravely risked their lives in the exploration of space. It specifically focuses on two best friends who work hard and are at the top of their class in the cosmonaut training school. However, as is the case with many of the real-life Russian space explorers, the story is a bit sad...and appropriately so. The ending, however, left me a bit flat.

I strongly doubt if this animated short will win the Oscar, though it is among the nominated films for Best Animated Short. I'll update my review once I learn who has won this prestigious award.

UPDATE: "Bear Story" won the Oscar in this category.
