Pearl (2016)

pearlNumber of Times Seen – 1 (20 Feb 2017)

Brief Synopsis – The life of a father and daughter is viewed from the perspective of their family car.

My Take on it – Of the four (of 5) Oscar nominated short animated films this year, this was my least favorite, but I still really enjoyed this film; which says so much about the quality of the films nominated in this category.

I didn’t really know what to expect with this film, but they do an amazing job telling a story that features the most important parts of a father-daughter relationship as so many essential parts of their lives can be viewed from the perspective of their family car which is a witness to so much.

Loved the music of this film and it really helps add to the way that the story is told.

In some ways, the music actually feels like a character of its own, helping to move us back and forth over the timeline of the lives of the two characters.

Bottom Line – Great idea because it shows the importance people play on their cars and from that perspective, we can see all of the important moments in one’s life that all take place in clear view of that car.  The music works really well here to help us with the story as it moves back and forth over the timeline.  Recommended!
