Audience Reviews for A Chairy Tale


A funny little piece about a chair that refuses to be sat upon. There's a playful spirit at work here (right down to the multi-lingual credits and the jaunty Ravi Shankar music) that makes it feel like a live-action cartoon. Very well choreographed. However, there is a certain length of time that it's fun to watch a guy mess around with a chair, and that time is slightly shorter than this film's 10 minutes.
