[ESP-ENG] Review: If anything happens, i love you. 🎬 ✔️
¿Un cortometraje muy triste? / A very sad short film?Feliz noche a todos, este es mi primer review y post en esta comunidad espero estar al margen. La verdad solo he hecho “oficialmente” unos 10 reviews, no soy especialista ni nada cercano a ello, sin embargo me encanta el cine y todo lo que comprende el mundo audiovisual así que voy a aprovechar este espacio para hablar de proyectos que me hayan gustado mucho y tal vez uno que otro que no tanto. Lo bueno es que es una excelente oportunidad para explorar en esta área así que espero estar al margen. 😅
Happy evening everyone, this is my first review and post in this community I hope to be on the sidelines. The truth is I've only "officially" done about 10 reviews, I'm not a specialist or anything close to it, however I love cinema and everything that comprises the audiovisual world so I'm going to take this space to talk about projects that I've liked a lot and maybe one or another that I didn't like so much. The good thing is that it is an excellent opportunity to explore in this area so I hope to be on the sidelines.😅
"Si me pasa algo, los quiero" or its original title in English " If anything happens, i love you" It is a 2D animated short which if you google you can find titles like "el descabellado corto..." And well, although I'm not a fan of "sad" productions I gave it a chance because at some point I read a brief reference on twitter and it had stayed in my mind, besides, I love animated shorts.
Released and distributed by Netflix in November 2020, this emotional short film shows us how a married couple tries to deal with the loss of a daughter. One of the things that caught my attention the most about this production, was that they managed to convey in a very real way what it means to lose a family member. How it can destroy a family and all its reality in a very forceful way. I was quite attracted from the beginning.
Definitivamente con este corto quisieron reflejar muy bien lo que es la violencia y todo lo que conlleva, como puede afectar a una familia la pérdida de un ser amado. Todo esto se ve reflejado en el soundtrack, en los colores, en la animación… incluso en la narrativa, todo funciona perfectamente para hacerse conectar con ese sentimiento de pérdida.
It is very easy to connect with the characters and what they feel even as drawings, as they knew how to convey all those feelings very well, perhaps (in my opinion) because of all the emotional charge of it.
Definitely with this short film they wanted to reflect very well what violence is and all that it entails, how the loss of a loved one can affect a family. All this is reflected in the soundtrack, in the colors, in the animation... even in the narrative, everything works perfectly to make you connect with that feeling of loss.
Throughout the short film you can perceive what is happening. Even if there are no dialogues, through various elements of the narrative one can get a good idea of what is happening with the characters, although to tell the truth they handled it in a very subtle way. When I saw it I wondered if it would be ideal to show it to my nieces, nephews and cousins and yes, the truth is that it is an excellent choice if you want to raise awareness about violence, family losses.
Un dato curioso es que este corto fue basado en un hecho de la vida real, específicamente en aquel terrible evento que conmocionó al mundo en el año 2018. Cuando Nikola Cruz, un ex estudiante del Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School en Florida, entró a dicho colegio y mientras amenazaba de muerte a sus compañeros, estos acorralados, enviaron mensajes a sus familiares.
I can conclude by saying that although this is a short film with a rather strong theme and that of course there is no consolation for such a painful loss, they also knew how to raise the hope that all is not lost and that it is possible to move forward.
A curious fact is that this short film was based on a real life event, specifically that terrible event that shocked the world in 2018. When Nikola Cruz, a former student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, entered the school and while threatening to kill his classmates, these cornered, sent messages to their families.
This short film touched my soul, I found it wonderful, entertaining and quite emotional. It won the Oscar for Best Animated Short for a reason. If you saw it, I would love to know your opinion in the comments, it would be of great value to me.🥰
English is not my native language, so I rely on translators
