La Maison en Petits Cubes

La Maison en Petits Cubes
  • Movie (1 ep x 12 min)
  • 2008

An old man resides in a city mostly submerged by water, living in a home he had to build on top of his old one. His daily routine now consists of smoking his pipe, drinking wine, watching television and eating the fish he catches. Living alone in the silent desolation of the elderly he is surrounded by photographs but no people. One day he drops his pipe into the water and it disappears into his old, submerged home. To retrieve it he rents a scuba suit, but once he descends into the place he used to live he is overwhelmed by the memories of the life he used to have - the family he used to know.

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

coffeebreath

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

chii

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.

Je t'aime

Je t'aime
  • Movie (1 ep x 12 min)
  • 2010

A lone basset hound wanders the empty streets of Tokyo. Humans are long gone, only distant memories remain in storefronts, buildings, and abandoned shrines. All the hound wishes is for someone to play fetch with again, and it faithfully finds a new ball each day in hopes that a curious being will cure its loneliness...

LadyPsychic

Both are short films that feature a character making friends (or trying to make friends in the case of Je t'aime) with a robot/android.  Both are rather melacholy and both feature characters walking empty streets.  Both also have the themes of friendship and lonliness.

Kari5

Both of these are slow shorts that involve robots(/android). They also both share a similar melancholy feeling. If you liked one you'd probably enjoy the other as well.

Two melancholy, beautiful shorts about a person/creature that meets a robot. I felt sad after watching both of them, but they are great watches.

Junk Town

Junk Town
  • OVA (1 ep x 13 min)
  • 2006

In a futuristic Earth where robots live side by side with humans, performing tasks and roaming the streets at their whim, a young boy walks through a city by himself. While passing by an alley he spots a quirky red robot who, upon destroying and eating another robot, grows a mechanical piece onto its makeshift tail. Intrigued, the boy observes the robot as it methodically eats and grows, and whether he likes it or not, this stray robot soon appears to not want to leave the boy’s side...

A child and his/her robot - a fun idea by any means. Rain Town explores the more melancholy scenario, while Junk Town is definitely more of a pick me up. Fans of one should at minimum appreciate the other.

Kari5

While Junk Town is not as gloomy, it quickly came to mind when watching Rain Town. Both of these shorts are about children and a robot who follows them. If you liked one, I recommend checking out the other.

Both follow a young person's adventure with a fantastical being (or robot). Beautiful, with a definite bittersweet tone. Fans of one should watch the other.
