La Maison en petits cubes

Kunio Kato, won an Oscar this year (2009) with this beautiful short film, named “La Maison en petits cubes“.
I love the way it was drawn, and the way the story is told, i bet it can make people cry!
The storytelling in the film reminded me a bit the first minutes of pixar’s Up (wich came out after this short film).

Kunio Kato said he was very inspired by:
Webdy Tilby & Amanda Forbis’ “When the day breaks” (1999)
Jean Pierre Jeunet’s “Delicatessen” (1991)
Fumiko Takano’s art
Yoji Yamada‘s “Otoko Wa Tsurai Yo

I think, he totally deserved the award! ;)
