EACH OTHER cover image
Each Other is an amazing, silent, short film with extremely charming animation and an abstract beautiful message. The story takes place in a world where your personalities, or what is referred to as "layers," are visible and, when a young man loses one of his layers, he must go on a journey to find his layer and explore himself. Each Other is non-narrative, telling its story without words. I really enjoyed the story because it delivers an outstanding ending with an amazing message, all done without words.

The cinematography is amazing, the film makes you feel so many emotions through the use of a specific camera angle at times. One shot that impressed me is the shot from outside a window; the camera is slowly zooming out and violin music starts to play. Just like that, you feel everything the character is feeling and, when he turns off the lights, you know his day had come to an end.

The costumes were great, fitting the time period and story line. The thing that sticks out the most are the layers themselves. The layers are always different colors and you can see through them a bit; they are beautifully animated and represented.

This film is fully animated and manages to capture everything in our day to day lives. It takes place in a city and it is amazing to see how, even in animation, it looks completely like people and the big cities we love.

The background music really helps bring the emotion to the surface. What sticks out in my mind is the violin music because, when that music plays, you feel every emotion the main character is feeling and more. I have to give props to the Director/Producer Sarah Tabibzadeh because of the odd, but charming story she created.

I highly recommend this film for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival. It's interesting and thought provoking. What I got out of it is: You might not like a part of yourself, but at the end of the day, you will always need that part and can't live without it.

I give this 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Jude A., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

People are living with their personality layers, and they take them to "Layeromat" just like their clothes. A young man who works in one of these "Layeromat" accidentally loses one of his layers. Despite his long search, he couldn't find it. But through an inner revolution during his searching, he reaches a new understanding of his being.
