Old Man And The Sea : The Most Beautiful Animation I've Ever Seen!!

I was blown away while watching Alexander Petrov's animated version of Hemingway's classic recently! Alexander Petrov did more than 29000 paintings using his fingers on glass plates with slow drying oil paints and the result is absolutely breathtaking! It undoubtedly deserved all the acclaim and awards, including the Oscar, it won. Its such a shame, an exceptional film like this, is not widely available and is extremely hard to get. Really envy all those who saw it in IMAX....Nevertheless, I got a chance to watch and own it finally!! For those who havent seen it, go buy it, rent it, borrow it...watch it anyway you can!! To me, its the most beautiful animation I've ever seen!!


Anyone interested in knowing a little more about this incredible film can checkout the AWN and BBC articles which were done at the time of its release!
