A beautiful animated film imagines a breakup as a Kung Fu fight

  • Going through a breakup, at least for the one being broken up with, is apt to send someone into the five stages of grief. You vacillate from anger to denial to acceptance, sometimes switching from one to another in a matter of hours. Filmmaker Jonathan Ng managed to capture this panoply of emotions in a gorgeous animated short film that converts the breakup process into a Kung Fu fight. You can both see and feel the resignation our male protagonist experiences as it dawns on him that no amount of struggle will bring his girlfriend back to him.
