Movie Review by Kierston Drier

Belgium director Pepijn Claus invites us into the world of insects with his delightful short Inside, which follows a terrified worm and an anger prone beetle as they run from, and our devoured by, a pesky bird. Humorous and charming with its’ classic schtick humor, the piece has a saturday morning cartoon feel, that is nostalgic for adults and enjoyable for kids.

The premise of the piece is simple and effective a classic tale of not giving up, in this case, even when you’ve been swallowed by a predator. Humor arises from our unlikely (and unlucky) duo who must join forces to escape certain demise.

Clear, fun ny, well executed Inside is a perfect family animation that will have you considering what life is like for the little critters of this world. It also teaches a valuable lesson about the early bird catching the worm.
