Spike Jonze has directed a new animated short called Mourir Auprès de Toi, which translates as To Die by Your Side, and it is delightful. Books! Felt! Very good. Personally, I think the short would be even better if it followed in the grand tradition of re-translated titles. Much like how The Hangover 2 in France became Very Bad Trip 2 and the recent Anna Faris romantic comedy What’s Your Number? became Sex List, this video would be great if it was called, like, Skeleton Face Romance Drama or The Books Are Alive Now!. That being said, it is still very good and you should watch it after the jump. And then you should sit back and think about how weird it is that some people have normal lives and some people have very sad lives and then some people are fucking Spike Jonze.
