...a wonderfully irreverent animated film that follows an odd immigrant from birth to the final chapter in his life.
It's a rare film that is both whimsical and deeply moving. Harvie Krumpet is that kind of film.
It was well done in the gray scale. I love the narration. It's a very depressing story about Harvie, who can't have a single good thing happen to him. But it was funny.
This Oscar winning (2003) short film is a pure delight! Harvie Krumpet has every reason to give up on life, yet he meets every setback with an indomitable optimism. Half the fun is reading the various "fakts" Harvie learns along the way, having been trained by his mother to observe and learn from an early age. Wonderful visuals and a heart felt story make this a gem.
Geoffrey Rush narrates the 20 minute claymation short from Australia about the life of Harvey Krumpet. Watching someone endure bad luck throughout their entire life has never been this much fun. Highly recommended.
