Perhaps due to my own certain age, I tend to particularly enjoy the shorts when an older person outwits or non-plusses the Grim Reaper. It’s not an uncommon story, there are a few laying around the crow’s nest here already, and I love ’em.
This animation is also in French – with French subtitles. I don’t know French. There is a lot of dialogue, or at least monologue – in French. Which I don’t know.
And I don’t think it matters. The story is independent of the dialogue and is a fun bit of romp.
