Oktapodi

2007 | Animation | Comedy | Short Film

Plot:

Two octopuses fight for their lives with a stubborn restaurant cook in a comical escape through the streets of a small Greek village.

So this was an oscar nominee. But it's very unlike other oscar nominated shorts I know about. It is not a serious film. It's just that it is enjoyable. I like it because it's really well made. The stunts were more realistic than full length action films. But the scenes of octopodes jumping from one pool to another, a bit too over the top.
