  1. By coincidence, I saw these today in Hartford. I found them quite creepy, particularly the Czech one! I, and the couple with whom I viewed them, were disappointed. The cat and the PitBull was sweet, the “hair” was OK, as was the painter with dementia. Perhaps it is the animated format that I didn’t like. When there was a technical glitch with the sound for the last one shown in this group, the girl with a hunchback, we left quite happily before they figured out what was wrong with the sound system. We never deciphered the meaning of this film.
