100 Greatest Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts (100 movies items)

"Adam Eliot's mini-masterpiece 'Harvie Krumpet' crams an amazing life story into 22 minutes. Using wonderful clay animation, Eliot relates the tale of Harvie Krumpet, a terminally unlucky Polish migrant. I won't spoil any more of the many, many details that make this one of my favourite Oscar winners of all time, except to say that Geoffrey Rush was the perfect choice to narrate. He manages to give a warm but appropriately detached performance which lets us work out when we should be laughing and"

"The sad, strange life of Harvie, who is born into an impoverished Middle European existence, and whose one constant is the book of "fakts" he keeps adding to, worn around his neck. After a childhood tragedy, he emigrates to Australia, where he has a succession of menial jobs, eventually ending up in a retirement home. Along the way, he has a string of bad luck, leaving him with, among other things, a steel plate in his skull that becomes a magnet."

"11.01. PC/TV, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Adam Elliot A nice, little blackly comic tale about a Polish guy with a Tourette's syndrome, a magnetic head and other peculiarities. I'm not terribly keen on clay animation and the humour in it is perhaps not quite my type but it makes a pretty enjoyable watch anyway. "

Best Animated Short - Winners and My Choices (82 movies items)

"WINNER: Harvie Krumpet Other nominees: Boundin' Gone Nutty Nibbles Destino MY CHOICE: 'Harvie Krumpet'. Some very interesting stuff this year. The less interesting shorts are from the big hitters. 'Gone Nutty' is an 'Ice Age' spin-off featuring nut obsessed squirrel Scrat. A fun 5 minute reprise of Scrat's nut-chasing-schtick, it's hardly Oscar worthy but fans of the film will likely enjoy it. Pixar's upbeat musical short 'Boundin'' is one of the studios weaker shorts and also wasn't reall"

Delicate, warm-hearted animated short

“"Life is like a cigarette; smoke it to the butt."

In this day and age, the thought of claymation will likely evoke images of Chicken Run or Wallace & Gromit, but, like any other medium, any type of story - from humour to drama; from the strange to the ordinary - can be conveyed utilising this particular filmic technique. Adam Elliot's Oscar-winning short film Harvie Krumpet is lodged firmly on the "peculiar" end of the spectrum, and is a delightfully humorous, yet drama-heavy little gem. Over the course of its 22-minute runtime, Harvie Krumpet tells the sad, strange life story of its titular character. Harvie (voiced by Flous) is born into an impoverished Polish family, but after a childhood tragedy he immigrates to Australia. From there, his life consists of losing loved ones, b” read more
