Balance

What an excellent short. I loved the minimalistic style, especially in the end. The meaning in this so very short film can be pulled in so many directions. I feel as if one can begin with the title and end up talking about all that is right and wrong with humanity. Therefore minimalistic design was a very fitting choice. This film doesn’t need to show anything through imagery, its meaning says it all. The world around the characters is there simply to prove a point. Enjoy.

Directors: Wolfgang and Christoph Lauenstein, Germany, 1989. Academy Award for Best Animated Short (1989).
