Set in the Australian outback, 'Bilby' follows the desert-dwelling marsupial Perry through the trials and tribulations of "parenthood" after he saves a defenseless chick from predators and inadvertently becomes her protector.
'Weekends' is the story of a young boy shuffling between the homes of his recently divorced parents. Surreal dream-like moments mix with the domestic realities of a broken up family in this hand animated film set in 1980's Toronto.
I was caught up in the sheer beauty of this little film. There are amazing tableaus all the way through. But I never got the story. Other than encounters with obstructions, there doesn't seem to be much of a plot. Granted, a piece of art doesn't have to have a traditional structure, but there has to be something to keep us riding along. Good work/Not great.
