A dead body became stuck by a river bank. Its decaying insides still hide a human soul – a miniature of the deceased. Rotting organs part and a tiny creature gets out. Standing on the river bank, it says goodbye to the corpse and sets off on a journey through the post-mortem land.

THE LITTLE SOUL is quite disturbing, criptic and weird. But it is weird in an interesting way, stimulating a reflection on life and death. It manages to be charming while using strong and evocative images, it is an adventure through death, anguishing and beautiful at the same time. The main character, although a decomposing corpse, manages to be really expressive when we have shots of his face, with vacant eye sockets and mouth open on the darkness. One thing is certain: this short film is difficult to forget, it impresses odd sensations in the viewer, and it is animated in an unique way which will never leave your memory.
