Oh, Look. Another Sad Short About Growing Old That I Love. I Think My Subconscious Is Trying To Tell Me Something.

The good folks at Gobelins recently released their last batch of student shorts, and this one really stood out to me. Partially, I'm sure, because it deals with the bittersweetness of growing old (and I just can't seem to get enough of that stuff). But mostly, it's because I love the way it made such excellent use of its distinctive medium to portray the creeping danger its aging protagonist must face.

Louis, a retired man, resists the overprotection of his daughter Nina to keep his independence.
