The tropes of romantic narratives have plateau'd a tad in feature length, as writers of rom-coms try to seek new ways to progress the formula, sometimes to no avail. However, it is a genre that lends itself to a sense of the magical in short films. Kahrs' 'Paperman' is a delight. 3.5
Short but sweet animated film about an office worker who tries to use paper planes to communicate with a woman he met in a chance encounter. Lovely black and white animation, PAPERMAN may only be 6 minutes long, but it packs an emotional punch. A 2012 Oscar nominee for Best Animated Short Film.
Likely one of the most beautifully animated films I've seen in a long, long time, even if it is just a few minutes long. It's heartwarming, fun, and just an absolute visual treat, and one you won't soon forget.
