An atmospheric beautiful animated Academy Award winner about nature and what happens just before and after a big storm renders an old mill even more weather-weary and broken. Who said that animated short movies are not art? This is one of many that should be shown to those who doubt it.
Unprecedented meticulous depiction in film of a world almost devoid of any human presence (the exception would be the mill, and maybe some cows that seem to walk as if herded). While other Disney's nature "symphonies" seem to be subordinate to a unifying music, here we get a general sense of beauty, but fragmented and with small dissonances. Pursues a balance between delicate and strong movement.
