The Animation Show s01e12
Titre original : Fifty Percent Gray
A dead solider wakes up to find himself with his gun, a widescreen TV, and a whole lot of time...
The director comments... "My idea was to make a story where the character starts out a hero, turns into a coward and ends up a fool. It's basically a big cruel trick played on him by whoever controls the afterlife... It's nice to be able to make a movie that has a really unhappy ending, and yet people still seem to enjoy it. I know it's potentially controversial subject matter - there were complaints on Irish Radio after its run in the cinema... but at least I didn't try to tack on an upbeat ending, which I believe is a way of taking it more seriously."
