Normally I'm not one who is into animated features or shorts, they tend to be a bit over the top on the sap factor for a cynical bastard like myself. Technical advancements are great and all, but I just don't see the excitement over the fact that a computer can make some cartoon monster's fur look real. I'll take a classic warner bros. 'toon with a good story any day.

That's why I like this short, titled
"Fallen" from Wolfram Kampffmeyer and Sascha Geddert. Simple, without so much as a word in dialogue, yet it says so much. It's almost enough to make me an optimist.

What's that? No, I have something in my eye...Yes, both of them...I don't know, I think it was a swarm of gnats.
