The Cathedral

A pilgrim comes to what appears to be the ruins of a gothic cathedral. Within its walls, the living faces of the stone statues watch his passage. His journey at an end, he stands... and awaits the miracle.

The animation on this one is excellent, but the plot is not. I don't know if anyone can interpret the short's ending, but I couldn't. Maybe if you could, you...

The Cathedral is a stunning piece of work and I shake my head to this day at the fact it was looked over at the Oscars--for the Chubbchubbs no less!...
