Each of these short works are fabulously animated, are silent and set in a quaintly odd environment, and are capable of surprising emotional depth - particularly La Maison en Petits Cubes, though Tortov Roddle has more instances of charming beauty. It's pretty obvious they were both made by the same studio and director and I think anyone who liked one will enjoy the other.

One of the first things to mention is that both Tortov Roddle and Maison are exquisitely animated. Also neither of them rely on verbal communication, which is a refreshing change. If you liked the emotive quality and the subtle, slow-paced plot of one of these, then definitely watch the other

Quiet, experimental, artsy, wordless little films - but with quite a lot to say. Surreal, fantastic, organic - these films share a similar sense of wonder and relaxation.

Both The Diary of Tortov Roddle and La Maison en Petits Cubes have the same very particular and charming artstyle, and manage to get across similar emotions in a considerably short period of time. Although the tones are a little different (melancholy in Maison, wonder about all kinds of sightings in Tortov), they are presented in a very similar way. If you loved one of these gems, definitely give the other a watch too!

The Diary of Tortov Roddle and La Maison en Petits Cubes (aside from having long names) both feature silent protagonists in unique settings paired with a wood-block-esque style and a heavy dose of whimsy.

FatalGlory FatalGlory says...

Both Tsumiki No Ie and The Diary of Tortov Roddle, have similar animation and music that helps to set the tone for the strange worlds that they are set in. Both tell deep stories and although The Diary of Tortov Roddle speaks in metaphor more than Tsumiki No Ie, they are both very similar in delivery and content.

Diary of Tortov Roddle and Maison are two beautifully-animated anime that rely solely on visuals and sound to portray their stories. While Diary's adventure takes places in islands and fantastical destinations, Maison's takes place through the memories of an old man. Both are wonderful watches.

These two short anime works both have a very peaceful air about them.  They both could be described as quiet and contemplative.  Watching them makes me long for an earlier, simpler era.

Another atmospheric and occasionally melancholic short silent film set amongst lots and lots of water.

Two bittersweet shorts. No dialogue. WATER. Memories. Nostalgia. Soft animation. Soft music. Go!

chii chii says...

Both shorts give off a sad feeling set to tender music but no speaking of the characters is needed to get the point across. Water is a theme in both shorts and they give off a very melancholic feel looks wise. Check em out!

La Maison and Rain Town are two very bittersweet and touching tales that are told without dialogue. Sad, but beautiful.

Atama Yama

valondar valondar says...

La Maison en Petits Cubes was the first anime short to win an Oscar, while Atama Yama was one of the previous nominees - but more than that, they're both superbly animated shorts with a grainy somewhat European look and focus on an elderly man, his very real problems depicted through fantasy elements. While they differ in how they treat that man - La Maison with tenderness, Atama Yama with cruel satire - they appeal to the same sort of audience.

aritentd aritentd says...

There are many reasons for liking La Maison en Petits Cubes and the amazing art it features is one of the obvious reasons. Atama Yama is drawn in a similar way using a little distorted image and it looks just as good as La Maison. If you are a fan of this art style, you will definitely enjoy both titles.

Man and Whale

Man and Whale

An old man who is the headmaster of a primary school bordering the ocean paints a picture of a whale, an animal he had seen so often off the coast when he was a boy and now sees all too seldom. He reminisces about his youth, when he simply considered whales a source of food, though he vividly remembers a time when a whale was speared by a whaling ship. He knew of no other way to treat whales then. But that day he sees the first whale he has done in a long time - and it is beached against the rocks. He races out of the school to come to the whale's aid...

valondar valondar says...

Both of these shorts show old men melancholically remembering their youth - and each are surprisingly sympathetic and touching in their depiction of these men, La Maison en Petits Cubes especially so.

cassiesheepgirl cassiesheepgirl says...

Both La Maison en Petit Cubes and Man and Whale deal heavily with nostalgia. In both cases the protagonist is an old man looking back over events in his life. While this is dealt with in more detail in la Maiso en Petits Cubes, if you enjoyed one of these, then definitely watch the other, especially when both are also beautifully animated.

FatalGlory FatalGlory says...

If you were touched by Ano Hana or Tsumiki No Ie ,then I think you will be touched by the other. Both are different in length and they are animated differently. But, they both deal with feelings of wanting to go back to the past, because you have lost something dear to you.

Though both are made in different style, they share the same topic: memories of the passed away close people. The difference is, how characters deal with this loss. Both are quite sentimental, well-made drama about losses and loneliness.
