Movie Info

"Nine Nation Animation" presents a selection of recent award-winning animated short films from the world's most renowned festivals, including Cannes, Berlin, Annecy, Clermont-Ferrand and others. The program spans the globe and a wide variety of animation styles. A cat and a mouse carry on a dysfunctional relationship in a futuristic landscape. A Chinese monk sets out on foot with a tiger during the Tang dynasty and happens upon the giant Buddhas of Bâmiyân. Two bluecollar workers dissect the meaning of "normal" life, as the world crumbles around them. A box of matches succumb, to their detriment, to the appeal of a cigarette.

The sparkling Nine Nation Animation reminded me of the value and pleasure of such collections.

Aug 2, 2011

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.

Top Critic

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.
