Nice to see a love story, about humans, told through the eyes of a dog!
'FEAST': Four Stars (Out of Five)
A 6 minute Disney animated short film; which played in theaters (including 3D ones) before the feature length Disney animated hit 'BIG HERO 6' (it's also been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, at the upcoming 87th Academy Awards). It's both hand-drawn and computer animated and tells the story a dog, that loves to eat, who's spoiled by his owner, with all kinds of human junk food. The dog's owner falls for a waitress, that works at a restaurant nearby, and we witness their relationship through the eyes of the dog. The dog's diet also changes, for the bad in his mind, because the waitress is a vegan. It was directed and co- written (with Nicole Mitchell and Raymond S. Persi) by animator, turned first time filmmaker, Patrick Osborne. The visuals are beautiful to watch (of course) and it's nice to see a love story, about humans, told through the eyes of a dog. I'm an animal lover and too often we see films told through the eyes of humans, and can only guess what any animals (in the film) might be feeling or thinking. This short is brilliantly told from the opposite perspective. Given the cool subject matter it could have been a tad more touching and emotional though.
