Fallen Art is an animated short by Tomek Baginski, polish director. His previous works include The Cathedral (2002).
The action takes place in the military base, where soldiers who lost their minds or are no longer wanted by the Army are sent to be expended. There Sergent Al, Photographer Dr. Friedriech and mentaly lost general A atempts to create wholy different art.
The highly stilised world of animation plays as yet another tool to tell the story : anomalous and grotesque style is like a reflection of the story being told. But at the same time its soft and rich blue-brown colour pallete and smoky warm lighting adds to the appeal. As reviewers of World Wide Cinema Festival notices, it is like the director took two illustrators Dave McKean's and Bill Sienkiewicz's style and brought a new one in this film.

But there would be many other aspects at wich the animation stands out, to give an example, character design, camera moves and editting or the main idea behind it. In over all this short film, to my mind, is one of the best examples of such kind and is worth analysing.
