memories in blocks

5 years, 1 month ago at Jul 23 17:35
Your life is like "blocks" in which your memories are on, the feelings of solitude are filled with sadness as you pass through those blocks, because the past always seems better than future.

It is such a lovely movie, as the old man's memories were passing I felt some kind of nostalgic sad feeling, but at the same time I felt comfortable.

100 Greatest Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts (100 movies items)

"Japanese animator Kunio Kato's 'The House of Small Cubes' won the Oscar for it's year. In this beautiful film 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. Kenji Kondo's musical score perfectly fits and enhances the melancholy mood of the piece."

"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"
