THE HOUSE OF SMALL CUBES (Japanese 2008 Los Angeles International Short Film Festival Los Angeles California USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

The House of Small Cubes is a completely inspiring, better-quality, animated short film. It reminds one of the montage of Carl Frederickson’s life with his wife in Pixar’s UP. This short is exquisitely done, an award winning 12 minutes of complete enjoyment.


An elderly man endeavors to save his home from flooding while reliving his past memories.
