‘Soft Animals’ By Renee Zhan

Renee Zhan's beautifully animated short astutely depicts the rush of feelings that come with running into a past partner.

by The MovieBabble Staff

Two ex-lovers cross paths at a train station.


Nick Kush: In a manner that only animation could express, Soft Animals is a very honest, funny, and occasionally gross (thanks to some wonderfully squishy sound design) depiction of what it feels like to run into a former lover. The collision of animation styles — whether it be watercolors, paint, or drawing — is a great visual representation of the rush of chaotic emotions that come with such an encounter, and how hiding just behind the niceties are plenty of raw, disparate feelings fighting to get out.



Director: Renee Zhan
Producer: Jesse Romain
