Wild Life (2011) Poster

Calgary, 1909. An Englishman moves to the Canadian frontier, but is singularly unsuited to it. His letters home are much sunnier than the reality. Intertitles compare his fate to that of a comet.

| Beautiful, Historical Fable....
Last night I went to a screening of all of the Oscar shorts at a theater and was impressed with the wide variety of films. It seems that some people, like the reviewer above, thinks that because "wild life" is both short and animated it should be light and comical, like most of the Oscar- nominated short films. "Wild Life" is not light but it's also not too dark and the animation is beautiful and even historically-based....The directors spent over 7 years making the film and many of the ideas for the film came from reading historical works about other travelers in the wild west during this time. Of all of the Oscar shorts that I watched last night at the theater, two stuck out: "La Luna" and "Wild Life." Both are interesting, incredible visually and completely different in style. That's what film awards are all about, right? Presenting something new and interesting? Don't read the review above because (1) It will give away some of the plot (2) You might like "Wild Life," as I did immensely, if you give it a chance.
