About this movie

Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with "Paperman." Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him. Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, "Paperman" pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction.

OH MY WORD THIS CARTOON IS SO AWESOME!!! It is so cute and makes me cry!! It is all about second chances and not giving up on finding the one you love; I will always believe in second chances until the day God leads me back to the one I love...

First of, aesthetically, this movie is so beautiful! I love they're use of that new technology and it just gives the film such a nice look that is so different from anything that I've seen. Now about the plot. If you love cute little love stories, like myself, then this is a perfect film for you because it is just so heart warming! I hope no one I know reads this... I really loved it that's why I paid for it and I normally I don't like having to pay but if I could pay a second time I would.

The whole idea of the film was genius! The black & white effect made me think so much about about our technology today, its a beautiful effect! The lipstick, the only color that shows, was a creative idea. Plus, the characters are so cute together, the art is truly gorgeous! Not a penny wasted on this film! Im just sad I found out about this movie until now, I wish they would have made this a bit longer and advertised it! Theres no doubt that everyone would love this! Thanks to all the people who made this!
