The film wasn't especially clever or insightful. What stood out for me was Kaj's face. He had spent his life making cartoons, and his face, in old age, had developed lines from smiling and his laughter. He did some of the voice over from the movie, and you could tell he was a real kidder. It wasn't as if he hadn't suffered - he had some horrendous times in his youth. But, he had overcome adversity and chose to live a happy life. You may know one of his most famous work: I knew an old lady who swallowed a fly . I think he worked for the National Film Board of Canada which paid people to actually do this kind of thing - make short films. Canada is different that way.
