Welcome again to another movie Monday. So today’s short film is from Pablo Larcuen. Plot: Manuel is stuck in a monotonous job, has only one friend that he cannot stand, and his family despises him. Everything will change when the doctor diagnoses him with a rare disease – Manuel is going to turn into an elephant. In the end Manuel still wishes he could keep his family and most importantly the love of his son. There is a touching moment at the end that shows that love a family can still be even when live throws you a curve ball. The other thing interesting is that it is all done with practical effects.
