From Ryan R. :

My wife and I saw Lorenzo when it played in front of the movie, Raising Helen. Prior to this I had never heard of Lorenzo so I had absolutely no clue what to expect.

The short is funny in a very dark way, and the accompanying tango music is captivating. It's too bad that this short got such a limited release and so few people have been able to see it.


From Brad Bethel :

I actually saw this cartoon back in the summer of 2004, when it was released in front of Raising Helen (I skipped the actual movie).

Seeing as how it was originally intended to be part of a third Fantasia, this demonstrates the creativity that can still be exercised with hand-drawn animation.

What also helps was that the concept was started by Disney legend Joe Grant. Amazing he was around for both Fantasias.

The cartoon was worth seeing, and its Oscar nomination was well-earned. Maybe in the near future, when Disney gets back on track and revives their hand-drawn animation services, we'll be seeing more stand-alone films like this, and possibly that third Fantasia.


From Mario Toro :

I would love to watch Lorenzo again. It is the most fascinating short story I ever had seen, the music, the colors, the animation.
