An arrogant doctor, death itself and an endearing old lady are the protagonists of this production that won us a Goya for best animated short feature in 2010, and with which we were nominated for an Oscar® in 2010.
An old lady lives alone on her farm, waiting for death to arrive so she can be reunited with her dead husband. One night, while asleep, she receives the Reaper’s visit and he invites her to step across the threshold. However, when she is about to do so, she awakes in the emergency room of a hospital: an arrogant doctor has brought her back to life. A frenetic struggle between the doctor and the reaper ensues to see who will finally get the old lady’s life.
‘‘The Lady and the Reaper” has won, among others, the Goya for Best Animation Short Feature 2010, and was nominated for an Oscar® in the same category the same year.
