Life in a Tin

Bruno Bozzetto (1967)

By restraining the whole cycle of life into just six minutes, the film underlines how our constant commitments often mislead us from the real meaning of life.

Bruno Bozzetto is an Italian cartoon animator and film director, creator of many short pieces, mainly of a political Hiii or satirical nature. He created his first animated short “Tapum! the weapons’ story” in 1958 at the age of 20. His most famous character, a hapless little man named “Signor Rossi”, has been featured in many animated shorts as well as starring in three feature films: Mr. Rossi Looks for Happiness, Mr. Rossi’s Dreams, and Mr. Rossi’s Vacation.

  1. That is really cool…I like the animation and the music.

    PS…I just watched…and if I have mentioned this before just excuse me… the Grateful Dead movie and the animation was pretty cool.
