The short film Pickled is endearing. I love the animation and the music. By the end of this film you will be smiling!

The story is about a chili pepper that wishes to be in exotic and spicy dishes. Then, he gets tossed into a jar with carrots to be pickled and everything turns upside down for this pepper. But, he learns a valuable lesson.

I like this film because it is entertaining and really cute. It also had a few valuable messages. The animation is 2D and is executed very well. I like the bright colors and the various shots of the chili. The setting takes place in a restaurant as well as the chili pepper's dream. The music has a Chinese influence and is very happy, but calm. The characters include a chili pepper, carrots, a chef, a mom and a daughter. There is very little dialogue, which allows the viewer to focus on visual elements of the film. The animation reminds me of early Disney films, with a slightly nostalgic quality. My favorite scene is at the end, when the girl eats the soup.

The message of the film is to always look on the bright side.

I give Pickled 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 6 to 18, plus adult will find this irresistibly cute too. Reviewed by Ava H., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

Pickled is a two-and-half minute 2D animated short about a young chili pepper who dreams to become a dish of delicious and dazzling food, but things do not go as planned as the chef decides to throw her into a glass jar to be pickled.
