      Audience Member Well, wasn't this delightful? Music provided by Shankar and Chantur was absolutely fantastic. It's amazing how the famous Canadian "short constructer" can make masterpieces of this caliber when resorting to such simple ideas. 94/100 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Very fun short about a man who wants to sit on a chair, and the chair that does not. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member A funny little piece about a chair that refuses to be sat upon. There's a playful spirit at work here (right down to the multi-lingual credits and the jaunty Ravi Shankar music) that makes it feel like a live-action cartoon. Very well choreographed. However, there is a certain length of time that it's fun to watch a guy mess around with a chair, and that time is slightly shorter than this film's 10 minutes.
