Staff Review

Bert Loos:
This film is guaranteed to keep you thoroughly entertained for its full two minute span.

The story is told in a typical 1920s silent movie style, but that doesn't mean that this is a low quality brickfilm. Quite to the contrary, this film has some of the smoothest animation you'll lay your eyes upon. The story is original and has some very funny visual jokes. Set design is great, character animation is as sublime as it is subtle and there is simply nothing not to like about this film.

Don't complain about the fact that the car was super close to the cat 9 times; it's a trick of the mind (and perspective)! ;)
