Eight is Great February 22, 2009

oktapodiSince the Oscar’s are tonight, I thought I’d do a related post. Up for nomination in the cateogory of Best Animated Short is Oktapodi. I saw this short today for the very first time and fell instantly in love. It’s a story about two octopi, young and in love, who become separated when a chef purchases one of them. The other goes to the rescue of his beloved and adventure ensues. The animation and colors are amazing and the setting is ranked among one of the top five places that I’d like to visit someday: the Mykonos. It’s a charming short that will make you smile well past the story’s ending.

that sounds like a little flick that i would love! i’m such a romantic shmuck–i enjoy all love stories, even when octopi are involved (i also enjoy the term “octopi”). 🙂
