please Mr. Spaceman
8 May 2017 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

The mystifying "My ne mozhem zhit' bez kosmosa" ("We Can't Live Without Cosmos" in English) is about two friends in training to be astronauts. I interpreted the Oscar-nominated short as a look at how one's career - and what happens to relationships because of it - can affect one's life. Like most animated shorts, it probably won't get seen by the majority of the public, but I recommend it. Containing no dialogue, it begs the question of whether great achievements are more important than friendship.

I've also seen "Bear Story", which one the Academy Award for Best Animated Short that year. Both shorts are worth seeing. I don't know that I would call one better than the other. In the meantime, do make an effort to see this one.
