I’m Here (short film) downloads a powerful code

20 Apr


Writer and Director Spike Jonze’s thirty minute short, I’m Here is one of coolest love stories I have seen in a long time because it can be interpreted in couple different ways. Based on Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, Jonze creates a world of robots living along side humans. They have a life with relationships with ups and downs like anyone else. Sheldon is a lonely robot that lives a safe and normal life. He catches the eye of a fun and free spirited female robot, Francesca that enjoys to break the rules and live life to the fullest. He falls in love with her and he is willing to do anything for her. On the one hand, Sheldon’s love is inspiring and makes audience’s think about their own commitment and on there hand, it can be interpreted as a co-dependent relationship that consumes Sheldon. This powerful paradox puts the program in the viewers’ lap to download or delete.
