Short & Sweet

Bravo to Marion Cotillard for her win yesterday. And if you're smart enough to come to this blog, you knew already "No Country for Old Men" was gonna win, even though "There Will Be Blood" was the better film.

A category nobody usually cares about is animated short. It's too bad, it's always beautiful, it doesn't take much time to watch, and the visuals are often stunning. So I thought I'd post a couple here.

First is a French film, short and really funny, called "Meme les pigeons vont au Paradis". I especially like the title.

Then is a stop-motion stunning short From Canada, "Madame Tutli-Frutli". There's no dialogue, but a beautiful score. It's very dark and tormented, and don't expect the story to make sense. But those guys worked more than 2 years to create those 15 minutes, so they're well worth it. It's in two parts:

And part 2:

But the winner was a Russian take on the classic "Peter and the Wolf". It's almost 30-minutes long, so I won't post it here, but check it out THERE.

That's it for today, thanks for coming, and don't forget to comment!
