So Gentle and So Captivating
20 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Once again, we have a short subject that could have been a children's book. It has everything. Two gentle characters, a boy and a fox, meet in a rainstorm. The fox is trying to catch water in a bag, but it leaks out as fast as it goes in. Eventually, the boy's umbrella becomes the receptacle for the water. The fox leaves with his treasure, using it for an interesting purpose. Beautifully animated with a gorgeous score.
