The plot of the film is a story of friendship between a little country boy and an old fisherman. Santiago, a strong and proud man, cannot accept the implacable passage of time, which takes away physical strength. For many weeks, he returned without a catch. Finally, he makes the decision to go for the catch far far into the sea and not return without catch. Only in this way an old fisherman can regain confidence and self-respect.Written by
the most unbelievable animation in decades...i am an amateur animator and perhaps from that perspective the film may seem more incredible, but that doesn't take away from the fact that aleksandr petrov is an absolute master of his craft. i was told by a friend that there are only a handful of "painting" animators in the world...those that animate via paint, and after seeing this i believe that he may very well be the rembrandt of animation. for any of you that are fans of both art forms (painting and animation, and lets face it... fans of anything that is stupefyingly incredible on this scale), this is what you need to watch. in the vein of winsor mckay and the old school masters of cel animation, petrov has re-instituted animation as an ARTform...not some Disney and terrible anime. this is worth spending the 20 minutes to watch...if only to feel deeply inadequate yourself.
