'THE HEAD VANISHES': Four Stars (Out of Five)

A 5-minute Canadian/French animated short film (spoken in the French language). This one is about a woman with dementia, who is still obsessed with the idea of completing her annual trip to the seaside. Her adult daughter assists her on her journey. It was written and directed by Franck Dion, and it's not completely clear what the short is about, as it starts out. It is very artistically shot and illustrated though. The visuals are quite impressive, and hauntingly memorable at times. It's also a touching story as well, especially for those with loved ones that have the same problem. This short is actually better than some of the ones that were nominated for Oscars this year.
