    This short animated feature, shown before Wreck it Ralph, is a powerful example of the emotional impact that can be achieved with animation. Not a word is spoken during the film, and I found myself choked up. Paperman is the perfect mix of laughter, romance and fantasy. The black and white style is visually stunning! The animators have outdone themselves with the classic style that almost makes the technology disappear, which is a wonderful change of pace in the 3-D crazy animated film department. This is one of the best pieces of animation to come out of the Walt Disney Company in years! Wreck it Ralph is a fun film and it is worth going to see. Especially since this gem precedes it. I highly recommend seeing both, in non-3-D versions of course.
