In a flooded town where the waters are ever-rising, an old man must constantly build new floors onto his home in order to keep dry. But when his favorite smoking pipe falls into the watery abyss beneath him, he dives into the depths of not only his house, but memories of years past. Tsumiki no Ie is a short film about the everlasting effect of time on one's life—how it can swallow the past entirely, and how one must learn to continue moving forward despite what has already happened.

Such a good short movie. There’s no reason not to watch it. It can only make your life better.

A short about a fully lived life and the passing of time, reflecting on memories, with an artstyle that calls back to french animation.


The true love will bloom eternally.


Bittersweet metaphor about human life and the passage of memories that weaves subtlety and artful symbolism with ambient sounds and visuals.


A quaint piece about love, loss, and the bittersweet experience of growing old.


Adorable short that is supported by music and visuals alone to tell a touching tale of an old man’s life and his unique home.


Masterful. I once saw this in a class and was searching for it.



    Anime is trash and so am I
