Oddly clever in concept even if it is deliberately difficult at times in terms of content
5 June 2018 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

There is a simple message within this film, and not one that is unique by any means. That message is one of a generation lost into social media obsession, of spending more time in the virtual than the real, and maybe not being able to separate themselves from one to live in the other. Type a random number into Vimeo and probably you'll hit another film doing just this. With Have Heart there is a difference thanks to the creativity behind it. It's main character is a few second-long gif of an animated bird failing to fly/ This gif then goes viral but the bird himself is not wholly aware of what is happening, and has a crisis as his life appears to implode around him.

The film was animated in the creator's free-time, and done without the specific planning and story-boarding that is normal in animation. This allows the film to flow in a weird way that is engaging in how unstructured it is, but the downside being that it does feel disjointed and unfocused at points - a percentage of any honest viewer base will contain many who dropped out long before the film ended. For me it was odd enough to stick with, and I enjoyed it despite its deliberate difficultness. The final shot bugged me a little bit; in one way it is a neat little closer, but then at the same time it feels so obvious that it clashes badly with what had gone before. I'm still not sure if I liked that or not.

Despite this though, it is worth a look albeit a difficult and overlong film which asks patience from the viewer but is generally worth it for the creativity within.
