Robin Robin (2021)

Rotten Tomatoes
Robin Robin (2021): 32 minute Oscar-nominated animated short. Orphaned robin is raised by a family of mice who sneak into houses for crumbs. Nothing special here, but executed well. Sweet, funny, uplifting, family-friendly. B+







My ranking of the five nominees:

  • Robin Robin (UK): B+
  • Boxballet (Russia): Beat-up boxer falls in love with a beautiful ballerina. Opposites attract. B+
  • The Windshield Wiper (US, Spain): Asks "What is Love?" and answers in vignettes that show a lack of connection. B-
  • Affairs of the Art (Canada): Pickled animals. Stuffed pets. Macabre art. One strange and creepy family. B-
  • Bestia (Chile): Ceramic doll with a bullet hole in her head recreates atrocities of the Pinochet regime. Jarring. B-
