"A wonderful and emotional little story. I really liked the atmosphere and its symbolism. Everything was good about this little movie: the silent plot, the music, the visuals, the main character and especially the conclusion. "

"Yllättävän haikea ja surumielinen animaatio, joka on piirrosjäljeltään mukavan persoonallinen japanilaiseksi standardiksi muodostuneen perusanimen seassa. Tarinankerronta on kekseliästä, eikä tapahtumien selkeneminen katsojalle ole haastavaa dialogin puuttumisesta huolimatta. Suurin hienous The House of Small Cubesissa kuitenkin on sen yksinkertaisuudessaan raju tunnelataus: vaikka menneiden aikojen tapahtumat koetaan jonkun ulkopuolisen silmin, vieläpä piirroshahmon, silti katsojan v"

Best Animated Short - Winners and My Choices (83 movies items)

"WINNER: The House of Small Cubes Other nominees: Lavatory - Lovestory Oktapodi Presto This Way Up MY CHOICE: 'Presto'. This year's winner was the touching 'The House of Small Cubes', in which a man is forced to add additional storeys to his house because of flooding. His descent into the previous levels of the house to retrieve his favourite pipe causes him to relive moments from his life. It's a lovely, deeply moving little short. Also enjoyable is the simply drawn, minimalist 'Lavatory -"
