852. Oktapodi – Emud Mokhberi, Thierry Marchand, Julien Bocabeille, François-Xavier Chanioux, Olivier Delabarre, Quentin Marmier


SUMMARY: Two octopuses attempt to save each other from being cooked in a restaurant.

WHY IT’S HERE: A student project by six students of Gobelins School of Visual Communication, ‘Oktapodi’ is a very short but sweet and entertaining action-comedy about two octopuses in a restaurant tank who are saved by their enduring love for one another. Their adventure, which is left on a cliff-hanger which suggests it is perhaps perpetually ongoing, is a delight to watch and the only complaint viewers have generally had about the film is that they want to see more. ‘Oktapodi’s simple charm and visual appeal were enough to get it nominated for the Best Animated Short Oscar.
