A MOVING AND HILARIOUS STORY ABOUT AN ORDINARY DAY IN A BENCH'S LIFE
It's so mundane, the bench, and yet so magical!
Everywhere in cities, parks and gardens it stands, like an open invitation. Sometimes the bench's visitors merely brush each other. At other times they hope for peace and quiet, but they get something else.
An elderly lady does everything she can to keep life at bay - from her bench. But the hectic surroundings take her by surprise. If only they could let her be old and grouchy alone!
But the boy is skateboarding, the dog is sniffing and scuttling around, the birds are chirping, and a friendly, elderly gentleman wants to read his newspaper. All of this is a nuisance!
"It is rare that the perfection in the (…. ) animation is so superb that you are not for a split second steered away from the empathy in the movements of the characters and the flow, essence and nerve of the narrative.”
