Disney: Paperman


With the gap growing between childhood and how old I am now, it's still a wonder that Disney can put together even the shortest of shorts that pull at my heartstrings and make my eyes grow wide with wonder. But, of course, that's the magic of Disney.

Give yourself six and a half minutes with Paperman, a love story set in a time before technology, where sending paper planes across the street was a novel and charming way to get hold of that cute girl you met at the train station, rather than the incessant virtual paper planes buzzing on mobile phones and pinging on personal computers. Sometimes, I really do believe the days before technology were ones worth growing up in - and clearly, so does Disney too.
