Dog has received awards at a number of film festivals all over the world for the past two years, and is praised as one of the best short films made recently. Puppet animations have been considered to be defective in expressing psychology, however, this film has succeeded in fully expressing various emotions. The facial expressions of the little boy and his father deliver enormous sadness that cannot be put into words: this may be the result of the efforts and hard work of the filmmaker who has devoted many year’s to making stop-motion animations. Inspired by the real story of her friend’s father, the film tells us how tragic it can be when you keep trying to hide the pain.
Inside is a short but impressive film expressing the same kind of emotions and moods in another animation style.
