Cesar Martinez, a talented student at the Vancouver Film School, has created "A Rather Lovely Thing", a wonderful animated short about true feelings and soul searching. It is a touching story of love, loss, loneliness, and adventure. The main character, a young man suffering a loss of his significant other, goes on an adventure that takes him to space and beyond. The trip, a metaphorical journey through the man's memories, helps him accept the reality and find his place in the world.
While the story may seem nostalgic and rueful, Martinez's video tells it in a beautiful, peaceful way. When you're done watching it, you probably will not reach out for a tissue, but smile optimistically.
