Mr Wurfel

Crictor is a film / animation studio based out of Zurich, Switzerland. Back in 2004, they creatively produced a dark humored short entitled Mr Wurfel. I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself while watching the story of a man overly obsessed about making right choices, whose life becomes inevitably bookended by unfortunate circumstances. It’s terrible, I know, but that’s on me.

Crirctor does an awesome job of presenting a very simple story, with a very simple layout. Just goes to show you how great quality storytelling can emerge from the sum of its parts. But enough talk, go check it out yourself and you be the judge.
