The Old Man And The Sea, Like You’ve Never Seen It

This is one of the coolest stop motion animations I’ve ever seen. It was created by an artist named Marcel Shindler, whose drawing ability is just ridiculously good, and you must watch it.

If you’ve read one Hemingway, it’s probably The Old Man and the Sea. This stop motion animation captures that novel in one of the coolest ways imaginable.

  2. Nice animation. It’s been way too long since I read this story, though, back in high school in the late 60s. Watching the video makes me want to read it again, though.

  3. I’m pretty sure I was told to read that book for school. I’m sure this means that I did not actually read it. After watching this, though, maybe it’s time to revisit.

  7. Oh my god I am reading this novella right now but the coolness of this animation cannot make up for the tragedy of the story… there’s simply no way to stand its sadness.
