THE BALCONY (From CalArts (California Institute of Arts) Santa Clarita California Released on YouTube USA 2022)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì 

The Balcony—short film—attempts to graphically define loneliness and the need to connect with others. The short film shows a vignette of modern life and an audience may be left with a boring, sadness that is difficult to shake after watching. The simple animation begins with a top-down view, which is a nice variation from many short films. It’s simply animated but its story seems too much like real life to fall in love with it as entertainment. It is what it is

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. It is what it is; a good effort. One interpretation may not be what the writers wanted the audience to take away.
