The Weepiest Thing You'll See Reflected in a Clock Pendulum

Prepare to once again lose all the dignity shed in tears for Up's relationship montage. This hand-drawn animated short from Japan will take you on a similar journey through the stages of a lifetime relationship--starting at reluctant courtship and ending the way all things do, in affirmation that time will inevitably strip us of all that we love. It's deeply emotional and at times tragic, but because it's Japanese, it also has that weird Japanese reaction shot window, and that eventually reveals the film's creator: Tekken, a comedian who has named himself after the Tekken video games and wears idiotic face paint. Try to ignore that part. Best not to look behind the curtain.
