Spike Jonze Has A New Short Film: Mourir Auprès de Toi

Director Spike Jonze is known for a lot of things. Whether it’s very well thought out and executed skateboarding videos, his work on JACKASS or more recently his feature WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, Jonze always manages to deliver an exceptional quality of work.

Spike is back with an outstanding short film; MOURIR AUPRES DE TOI (TO DIE BEFORE YOUR SIDE) which was created with director Simon Cahn. If you are fan of literature, French themes, animation and love stories, then this short film will be right up your alley.

The short begins in a delightful Parisian bookstore ‘Shakespeare and Company.’ The building’s interior is romantically lit and as a shopkeeper tidies up for the day, only the books are left in light. A magical adventure ensues.

The film really is a showcase of how perfectly executed sound design can make a good film, a great film. The animation has such charm and the story is delightful too!

Check it out!

    The Shakespeare & Co Book Shop is one of my favourite places in Paris! Awesome store and even more so, love this short!
