House On Little Cubes (Tsumiki No Ie) by successful Japanese animator Kunio Kato won the Best Short Animation Oscar in 2009. House On Little Cubes is a tear-jerking animation about an old man looking back on his life. It is set in a flooded Japanese city where the waters are forever rising. As they do, the old man is forced to add levels onto his home in order to stay dry. But when he drops his favorite pipe into the watery depths below, his scuba-diving search for the pipe prompts him to keep on descending and relive scenes from his life. If you're not in tears by the end of the film then you must be a robot. It could be considered the animated version of The Last 3 Minutes... if you like House On Little Cubes by Kunio Kato be sure to rate and share it.
