The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

It is sort of a funny story, because today I just got accepted into the University Oldenburg went to, and coincidentally met people that are very close to him. I couldn't help but to watch this movie.

This is by far one of the cutest animated short films that I have ever seen. I highly recommend it. It will melt your heart every minute and you would really wish the movie was longer, because it has got some serious potential. Its metaphorical symbolic yet subtle style is remarkable.
