Alike Short Film

Another one-of-a-kind animated short film to watch. Alike is an animated short film from Spain directed by Daniel Martínez Lara & Rafa Cano Méndez. The short is about a father trying to teach his son how to live a unique life, only to realize how much society drains our creativity and originality. This reminds me a bit of Disney's short film Inner Workings, which played before Moana last year. What I love about this short film is the simplicity of it - there's no dialogue, it's all about these two characters, but it has so much to say, and it's easy to pick up on all of that. Most importantly, this reminds us that we should listen to our hearts.

    Great short. I like the simple style and it's well animated. Although this is definitely the third or fourth animated short I've seen in the past few years that deals with these themes of breaking out of a monotonous life and being yourself or going for your dreams. Most recently Inner Workings that showed before Moana. Even Paperman is along those lines.
    • Because our lives are being "Orwellianalied".
