Plot: The mind and heart of an average office worker clash over what he wants and what he needs.
Goes very well with ‘Moana’
‘Moana’ was knockout entertainment and one of Disney’s best in years. While not one of Disney’s best short films or works, ‘Inner Workings’ is still very good and goes very well with ‘Moana’ if not quite as good.
The animation is superb, being immaculately detailed, beautifully and intricately drawn with rich colour and some very inventive visuals. The music is hypnotic and understated, a good fit and meshes well with what’s going on in the animation, not necessarily enhancing it but never intrusive or distracting.
‘Inner Workings’ will have, and has been, compared to one of Pixar’s masterpieces ‘Inside Out’ in concept. It’s not as imaginative, but explores its ideas in a way that’s fascinating and thought-provoking. Throughout, ‘Inner Workings’ is very charming, cute and thoughtful.
Characterisation does nothing to hinder the material and how it’s executed, while the voice acting is very strong.
All of this more than makes up for a lack of emotional depth (when compared to something like the heart-wrenching ‘The Little Matchgirl’) and an ending that comes over a bit awkwardly.
Otherwise, it’s a very good short film, if falling short of greatness or mastery, and a more than worthy companion for ‘Moana’.
