Robots in Love

Amazing what an indie soundtrack can do. That, and some fun special effects. All in the service of solid storytelling. “I’m Here” feels like the little movie that could.

I was particularly moved by this short film from Spike Jonze about a couple of robots who fall in love. Who says that a bunch of motherboards, some electrical wire, and a lot of plastic casing equals a soulless form? There’s more heart in this movie–and emanating from these mechanical characters–than many of us humans experience on any given day.

Seems like I’m not alone in my adoration. Take a look see.
