The Closed Notebook

The Closed Notebook ★★★

Somehow I only just now found out about this short film despite being a fan of Israeli animator Yotam Perel (the lead actor and credits song performer) for several years. Here, he plays a school student with autism who carries around a notebook full of strange drawings. I was admittedly lost in translation since, from what I know, there are no English subtitles available. I'd say it's still worth it just to experience the "so bad it's good" performances, especially the screaming teacher.

Just seeing Yotam be his awkward self is all good with me.
