| Genius View of Love, Death, Parting and Sorrow
Maurice Sendak loved his little dog Jennie but she did not love him. Just before her death Sendak began a picture book about Jennie's attitude towards him and life and what happened to her following her death. This short film is a work of quality that even more than the book evokes a sense of the tragedy that that is the relationship between long - lived man and short - lived dog. Anyone who comes upon the film without not being aware of the source material might not understand what is shown until the conclusion. That's one of its virtues. The beauty of the visuals is unsurpassed in film . This is true even tho some of the characters are grotesque in the style of Tenniel's art for Alice in Wonderland. The viewer's reaction to this stop motion puppet masterpiece may well depend on how he feels about animals. For me it's crushingly sad. A must see for anyone interested in dog/pet stories.
