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.

First-rate compilation Nine Nation Animation sprawls not just in terms of geography but technique, theme, style and tone, offering a filling multicourse meal for the discerning grownup toon fan.

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.

Dazzling, challenging and heartening all at once.

It's a winner, with only one or two duds among the nine movies.
