Top Ten Animated Shorts: No's 9, 8 & 7

Continuing my favourite films featured here this year...

No 9:

Izabela Plucinska: Jam Session is a love story set above a jazz club. The coarsely shaped clay figures act out a touching courtship as the ageing couple's dancing days are reignited by the band beneath. I grew into the movie as it progressed, just as the man and woman's romance is rekindled.

No 8:

Spela Cadez: Lovesick is a love story with the heart in the wrong place. That's all one needs to know about the plot but this beautifully observed comedy has such appealing puppets that make unlikely, gauche, would-be lovers. If the festivities have left you immune to the movie's charms, there is no hope.

No 7:

Yevgeniy Sivokon: Laziness was recommended to me as a satire. How right you are, Niffiwan. Indolence, lethargy, slothfulness... I'll do anything to put off work. As an object lesson in what can happen if you let the grass grow beneath your feet, let me inform you that it sprouts to jungle size, you fall over and the tiger gets you. Alternatively, the fish devours the owner of the bowl. A remarkable movie, an object lesson for all of us. And droll. No dilly-dallying from now on.

One thing: isn't Alma a girl? Or that's what I thought, with all the interests in puppents 'n stuff :)

Never thought of that. Basic lack of research. Apart from the name, suggesting he is a she, all the dolls in the shop are girls with the exception of the boy on the bike. So yes, rhemrev, you're correct. Thanx too.
