Film Review: TRAIN, (Israel, Animation/Music Video)

A lovely musical piece childrens’ animation piece, TRAINS describes a parents playtime ritual with their small child. A lovely, beautiful piece bursting with bright watercolors, fun shapes and musical magic, this three minute Israeli film will transport you straight back to childhood.


Much like watching fun song from sesame street or your favorite children’s show, TRAINS will sweep you up in it’s joyful, youthful whimsy. If you can remember a time from youth when you became totally engrossed in your play-time, then you can sense the moment TRAINS attempts to capture in its viewers. If you are a kid at heart, it will succeed.
