I discovered this delightful short film called Feast about a dog and his owner's life shown through the meals they share.
Another film I've enjoyed recently was The Book of Life about a tale of three Mexican children involved in a game of the gods. The story spans from the land of the living to the land of the remembered and the land of the forgotten.
I also watched Song of the Sea which has a completely different pace and tone to The Book of Life but it still manages to bewitch through it's telling of Irish fairy tales and simple but beautiful animation. Song of the Sea is mainly about two siblings learning to work together to help the faeries and each other as well as the failings of the adults who should be caring for them. The animation of this is more traditional to the other films mentioned above but it blends well with the traditional Celtic music used in the film.
