I will start of by stating that I thought this was very different and better than what I expecting this to be. While I do have experience with the director's other works, this has a level of charm I feel to be absent in most of the other stuff directed by this man.

This is a modern take on Shel Silverstein's classic, The Giving Tree. The director takes the base of the story and takes a different approach than the original, but maintaining the charm that brought us all to love the original tale. Instead of a tree we have a chair that can move on read more

I got invested.

And moved..

By a chair.

A jumping chair.

This short is absolutely sugoi. 10/10.

Just watch it.

It is only 3 minutes 35 seconds.

Here, I'll even give you the link:

Also completely agree with @sdklanhlnahf

Visual narrative is an underappreciated craft.

You can still tell a good narrative with little to no dialogue or exposition. It also works exceptionally well in shorts films.

When done right it can be amazing when done wrong it is just garbage.

Ambiguous symbolism.

Not even once.

Poulette no Isu is a short film directed by Hiroyasu Ishida about a young girl with a magical chair. Because of the length of this short, I'd honestly rather not say anything else, but that also makes Poulette no Isu very easy to recommend.

It's under five minutes long, the artwork is top-notch with very bright yet soft colors, and the animation rivals that of Studio Ghibli while bearing a striking resemblance. Aside from that, it manages to portray a simple chair as a charming character, and it tells its story without dialogue or exposition, something which is an underappreciated mastercraft in its own right.

That's read more
