The Lost Thing

Earlier I looked at some of the art of Shaun Tan, an Australian artist who creates beautiful illustrated novels for children. One of his stories, The Lost Thing has been made into a short film and is an interesting critique of contemporary society and the notion that unless we are looking for something, it can go unnoticed.
There is a sameness and dreariness of the city workers in their grey suits, blind to a world full of beautiful things the film suggests they have perhaps lost their childhood spirit.
