When I saw this short animation on the Monday night in question, I was surprised to see how such a sad story about a 'retarded migrant' could be so humorous. His story from a lumberjack's son to an animal- liberationist to an alzheimers patient is a well written and an entertaining one. I won't give away too much, but you will be pleased at just how entertaining this film is.
It definitely deserved the Oscar. I was quite surprised that it won, but then I saw the film and understood why.
If you every get a chance to watch it, take advantage of it.
I especially enjoyed the minor story about Harvie's doctor. Very clever
