I'm Here - A Love Story In An Absolut World
Spike Jonze directed a short film called I'm Here. It's a love story about robots. The movie opens up in Eagle Rock, California on a bus where you are introduced to Sheldon. He is polite beyond belief. Waiting for the bus home, he sees Francesca. She is a really cool. They fall in love. She takes Sheldon to a show, and her arm tares off. Sheldon gives her his arm. Then his leg. Then his life. With a good soundtrack the movie captures a strange but beautiful world where humans and robots co-exist. In only thirty minutes, Spike Jonze creates characters more memorable than most movies spanning two hours. It's really enjoyable. You can watch the whole movie here.
