Media For Lunch: Life is Beautiful

Your entertainment fix in fifteen minutes or less. 
Handsomely animated by writer-director Ben Brand, Life is Beautiful finds a sweet and artful way to show the world Anton resides in, delivering a rather interesting take on what the after-life might look like.  Life is Beautiful mixes eccentric and supernatural elements with moody and sadly comedic scenes, which allow the audience to ponder on how they experience their own surroundings and place in life.  
– Myrna E. Duarte
Anton may be done with life, but life ain’t done with Anton. In his convincing decision to change his measly existence he discovers the real greatness of life.
