VIDEO: Fall in love with 'Paperman'
MANILA, Philippines - If you are an animated film fanatic, then you are familiar with Disney Pixar's tradition of showing an animated short before the main feature.
In our November 2012 review of "Wreck-It-Ralph," film critic Carljoe Javier mentioned the animated short that was shown before it, the black and white "Paperman."
Here is the short's description on the disneyanimation YouTube channel:
"The short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him."
As we welcome February, the so-called "month of love," we thought we'd feature "Paperman" and its sweet love story.
Watch it here:
"Paperman" was directed by first-time director John Kahrs. It is nominated in this year's Oscar Awards that will take place on February 24. Watch out for Rappler's live blog. - With reports from Kai Magsanoc/Rappler.com
