An Old Man Embarks on a Journey to Find His Long-Time Giant Troll Friend in Animated Short Film FORGET ME NOT
I’ve got a wonderfully made and touching stop-motion animated short film for you to watch today called Forget Me Not. The story centers on an old man who lives in the Norwegian forest and goes on a journey to find his long-time giant Troll friend who felt it was time for him to leave.
This the is the synopsis that came along with the short:
Deep in the Norwegian forest, there is an old man, living an orderly and quiet life. Closed off from the rest of the world, he spends his days together with his lifelong friend, a troll. Together they share an everyday routine, drinking tea and taking care of each other. One day the troll begins to hint that the time has come for him to leave the comfort of their home.
Not wanting to face the consequences of reality, the man sticks to his routines, maintaining their daily life. One morning, the troll is gone. Trying to restore balance to his life, the old man leaves his home in search of the troll, only to find himself getting lost in his own mind, entangled in his fears. In his darkest moment, he realizes that in order to find peace, he needs to accept the fate of his friend.
The short film tells a heartfelt story, and I loved the character designs and visual style and tone of it. I hope that you enjoy it as well!
