The Lady and The Reaper: Patiently Awaiting Death

The Lady and The Reaper is an acclaimed animated short film by the Spanish director Javier Recio Gracia, which was just named a 2010 Oscar Nominee for Best Animated Short Film.  The film tells the tale of a sweet old widow who is living alone on her farm, waiting for the arrival of death so she can be with her beloved husband once again.  One night, while asleep, the lady’s life fades out and she’s invited by the grim reaper to cross death’s door.  But just when she is about to do so, the old lady wakes up inside a hospital ward and discovers that, unfortunately, she’s been saved from death’s door by an arrogant doctor. The doctor then wages what he thinks is a heroic battle against the grim reaper, attempting to recover the old lady’s life at any cost.
