En tus brazos - a sweet tango. [flash]

I don't really get it, but I guess it was pretty cool.

Is there any explaination?

(really, what is this??)

Imagine Timoteo Burtón in full-on romantic mode. Loved it! (I found the sound effects particularly witty.)

aha! That's who it reminded me of: Tim Burton. But it was neat.

Info here, but I don't speak French, sorry. It's enough to know that they're from SupInfoCom. [previously on mefi] How do they keep turning this calibre of student out?

I may be wrong, but I think the idea is that the man and woman were once famous tango dancers. The "Accidente" caused the loss of the man's legs. Now he pores over his old media blurbs feeling sorry for himself. The woman tells him to stop, picks him up and dances with him. During that time he experiences a dream-like reliving of his joyous dancing days.

Does that sound about right?

I'd say you nailed it there, TimeTravelSpeed. I mean, uh, wasn't that, like really clear? And, yeah, quite influenced, I'd say, by Tim Burton: looks a lot like Corpse Bride, though Corpse Bride is actual puppets, not CG.

Oh, and tellurian, thanks. That was really lovely.

Oh! I see that SupInfoCom have a blog now (check out that horse clip).

Thank you tellurian. That was wonderful.

It was lovely.

Depicting a man remembering his Last Tango In Paris, though, I guess I was expecting someone a little more corpulent. And more liberal use of dairy products.

Thank you tellurian, that was remarkable. Gloriously done.

I enjoyed it thoroughly, but wasn't the Victrola spinning the wrong way? Or were there models that went counterclockwise?
