Paperman delivers the message

PAPERMAN-short

Paperman is an Academy Award winning animated short film that uses a paper plane to transport the message of love.  John Kahrs directs this black and white Disney film about a man and a meeting by chance on a train platform because of strong wind and loose piece of paper, but their encounter is interrupted by the train’s arrival and the girl’s abrupt exit. Audiences can relate to the romantic notion of love at first sight and Paperman delivers,  but I have an issue with Disney’s propensity for creating ultra-skinny, unrealistic looking female characters as the main love interest. The emotion is there and audiences connect with the story to the point you are rooting for them, but whenever an animated film attempts to capture the essence of the human condition I believe it should also represent the characters in a realistic way. This is my only criticism for an otherwise clever piece of art.
