We Can't Live Without Cosmos

We Can't Live Without Cosmos (2014)

*** (out of 4)

This Russian film was nominated for a Best Animated Short Oscar and it's easy to see why as director Konstantin Bronzit doesn't use a word of dialogue and instead lets his two characters and animation tell the story. The story is quite simple as two best friends grow up in hopes of becoming cosmonauts and will do everything together in order to get their dreams.

WE CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT COSMOS is a pretty good short that manages to have quite a bit of imagination going in it. I really loved the fact that this was an old-fashioned animation that used hand drawing. In a world full of CGI sometimes it's good to just go back to the old school stuff. For the most part the film moved extremely well and there's no question that it's well-made and looks terrific.
