Out of the nine shorts included here, only four prove to be particularly memorable and only one of that group is a perfect marriage of form and content.

A series of 9 short films that mostly impress with stylish animation, clever concepts, poignancy and, at times, a sense of humor. The best film among the bunch is FLATLIFE.
