Heart day at the office.

by Andrew MacGregor

Short Films: “The Brave Heart” - 9 mins 56s

Bodily functions abound in Luca Schenato and Sinem Vardarli's witty animation, which sees a bloke's heart fight to avert corporeal armageddon. As captain, the heart must rally his fellow organs and muscles - although distracted brains, sozzled livers, and smoke-filled lungs threaten to derail his efforts.

Eschewing dialogue for indecipherable grunts and mumbles, Luca&Sinem's cautionary tale boasts plenty of clever visual cues (head versus heart rendered as a game of ‘Pong', for instance) and a gross-out finale which vindicates the demise of Smell-O-Vision. Who knows - it may even trigger some belated New Year's diets.
