Animation Monday: Father and Daughter

This is a Dutch animated short film which won the 2000 Academy Award for Animated Short Film.

The style is minimalistic with simple siluette-like lines. The story is heart-gripping with small measures.

If you look to beginning-middle-end, I think the middle-part is too long. I would have liked a little bit more in the beginning and the end.

I find the lack of closeups rather special. Often you find images of faces and eyes to enhance emotions, but here we keep the distance.

Here is a link to the movie.
