629. Dancing – Bruno Bozzetto

hqdefault

SUMMARY: A lone man on an island dances happily in his colourful hat. When the Grim Reaper arrives to collect him, the man fears his dancing days are done…

WHY IT’S HERE: Bruno Bozzetto’s ‘Dancing’ epitomises a tendency of the director’s late 80s and early 90s films towards the brief but effectively to the point. Like its predecessor, ‘Big Bang’, in ‘Dancing’ Bozzetto says a lot about life in a comparatively small space of time and with great humour and originality. For a short that takes place in such an isolated location, ‘Dancing’ is bursting with energy and viewer’s are left with much to discuss after the film’s few big laughs. Dancing with Death has never been so much fun!
