The CGI is breathtaking...the story itself rather off-putting to say the least.
The film consists of showing a variety of frogs and toads enjoying their time in a stagnate swimming pool as well as within a a deserted mansion.
This French animated short was nominated for the Academy Award. We'll soon know if it's won or not, though I would assume it's only an outside shot at the Oscar. This is because although the animation is among the best I've ever seen (and it is a visual delight), the story itself if rather gross and off-putting. In other words, after seeing so much beauty and enjoying the visuals, the story itself was not particularly pleasant or good...at least to me. And, I assume others will feel the same. I would like to say more about WHAT and WHY it was so unpleasant but this would spoil the short for you.
