LOUIS' SHOES - MARION PHILIPPE, KA YU LEUNG, JEAN-GERAUD BLANC & THEO JAMIN (2020)

Another excellent animation from French students, Louis' Shoes (Les Chaussures de Louis) won the Student Academy Award for Best Animation. Yes, it ticks all the "made-for-awards" boxes (except diversity), but that does not detract from it being a very nicely made film with a warm ending. Louis is an autistic kid who has arrived at a new school after classmates at his previous establishment used his devotion to his shoes against him. Forced to introduce himself, he seems destined for a life on the sidelines. It is a little reminiscent of the very fine 2008 French animation Skhizein but a bit more on the nose (the monologue even uses the word "autistic" in case you did not get it). If you like the animated short film Louis' Shoes be sure to rate it and share it.
