This film has been on the internet for a few years now. But I can’t resist sharing one of the most amazing pieces of animated story telling I’ve ever seen. Fallen Art is a Polish animated short film that depicts the insanity of… war? Listen, I have to confess, I’m not totally sure what this film is trying to tell us. I have several interpretations. Every time I watch it, I interpret it differently and I’ve watched it many times over. The literal storyline has an officer commanding obedient solders to walk off a plank to their imminent death. The reason why is morbidly insane. It’s for a motion picture that another animated character is creating which depicts solders dancing. But they aren’t dancing. They are dead.
It’s crazy. It’s brilliant. The animation is outstanding. The storyline is layered with hidden messages. You will want to watch this more than once. I promise you that.
A fully intact pumpkin for this brilliant piece of work! If you are a fan of animation or simply a fan of great movies, you have to check this award winning film out.
