Reviewed by: CaesarD,

This film deservedly won the Academy Award in 2004 for Best Animated Short. It's a claymation tale of Mr. Harvie Krumpet (nee Harvek Milos Krumpetzki) who emigrates from his native Poland after Hitler's invasion and heads down under to Australia. Harvie has many unfortunate mishaps (as do his family members) but these are often darkly humorous and even touching at times. He gains insights into life and through his perseverance manages to find happiness here and there. Is he a modern Job, refusing to let life's cruelty get him down? Or is he a claymation Ziggy, who allows us to laugh at life's misfortunes? Either way this film is a genuinely creative, funny and even moving film. Buy the DVD (available 11/9/04) and you also get Adam Eliot's other 3 claymation shorts "Brother," "Cousin," and "Uncle."
