A man's best friend to the very end.
The story is about a man's love life is seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.
Feast is a 6 minute short film that by now judging on the date of this review, this short film has been nominated for Best Short Film at the Oscars and who knows... it might win. Okay so this a short film and that means this review might not be has long as my other reviews, so basically it's a short little review on this cheerful short film, well it might be a long review.
I got to say that the first ever scene in this short film with the little dog barking and being a happy puppy was the cutest and the most adorable thing I've seen since the beginning of the 2008 film Bolt. Have you ever got that feeling inside of you that it's so cute that you can't take to much cuteness, yeah that's this.
What Feast got so beautifully well is showing a cute little dog who loves junk food and in the background there's another story happening with two lovers and they relationship, but has the short goes along it quickly turns surprisingly depressing. Feast is only 6 minutes long and it brilliantly give you all the cuteness, cheerfulness, depression and back to happy again and Feast gives you all that in a matter of 6 minutes, it's a bit like Up with the opening scene where you already know everything about them and it's only last for a couple of minutes, I mean that right there is masterpiece of directing and writing.
The animation is so colorful and so beautifully bright that the animation is the icing on the cake for this touching and a well made short film.
