When we think of Pixar movies, we probably recall movies like Finding Nemo, Toy Story and Wall-E. Generally, Pixar makes family friendly movies to be enjoyed by both children and adults alike.
But in a recent twist, two Pixar animators made a short animated film called Borrowed Time that shocked a lot of viewers and challenged even themselves. It starts with a man standing on top of a cliff looking into the distance before it starts getting dark very quickly.
This short film has been made available for a limited time only so watch it while you can below:
The video certainly is more adult, but it still has the familiar Pixar look, with marvelously expressive characters and a tremendous attention to environment and modeling. Like so many Pixar features, Borrowed Time is expressly about family bonds, and how they heighten emotions — in this case, guilt and disappointment. This is a short vignette, but it’s effective and powerful.
