Excellent Animated Short
26 February 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Borrowed Time (2015)

**** (out of 4)

A worn-down Sheriff returns to the scene of an event that helped shape who he became as a man.

That's pretty much the only plot you need to know about this wonderful animated movie, which picked up an Oscar-nomination for Best Animation Short. If you're a fan of Westerns or of animation then you'll certainly want to check out this seven-minute picture because it's certainly something special. The animation is excellent as you'd expect but where the film really succeeds is with its story. I'm not going to ruin what happens but it's an excellent drama and really packs an emotional punch. It's rare that I feel this connected to an animation piece but it certainly ranks right up there with the best of Pixar or Disney.
