Most of the shorts in this international collection are somber or wistful, but a few stand out for their wit or visual panache.

A traveling road-show of (duh) nine shorts from nine countries that gets points for both style and content.

Each would be headache-inducing if any longer than 10 minutes, but they work here, tying their eclectic but masterful exercises in the medium to pointed messages.

If nothing else, Nine Nation Animation proves that there's a lot more to the animator's art than either the cutting-edge ultra-realism of Pixar or the flat functionality of sitcoms like The Simpsons.

As with most mixtape approaches to film, your mileage will vary. What's really on display is the wide array of styles and techniques available to animators, proving that not everything needs to look like Pixar.

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.

NYC Movie Guru

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.
