Cast: Marie Alexis, Fredrik Sjostedt
Genre: Romance/Short film/Animation
Rating: General
Comment: "It's easy to forget that this is a stop-motion short film starring animal puppets..."

Bunny is sitting in her bedroom browsing through a photo album. She starts daydreaming and the images come to life. The time she shared with the love of her life is enacted. During her training to become a nurse, Bunny meets, by mere chance, the fighter pilot Bear. Romance ensues and they form a couple. When Bear is about to propose, they are suddenly interrupted by an international conflict. Duty calls and Bear is sent into battle. (Source: IMDb) 

Alright, I never intended to write a review about this short film. This is just something that I saw several years ago when YouTube launched its Screening Room channel, a platform for budding film-makers. I thought it was pretty damn good, and I'm not even a fan of opera. Not by a long shot.
