Western Animation: Head Over Heels

Head over Heels is a 2012 stop motion animated short film about an old married couple who share a house in which each person's floor is the other one's ceiling. The film was written and directed by Timothy Reckart.

This film provides examples of:

  • Bizarrchitecture: Each person's floor is the other one's ceiling. The opposing gravitational directions are permanent for the couple, but inanimate objects conform to the gravity of the floor they're closest to (more or less).
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: The couple's opposing gravity directions make it difficult for them to interact, although the framed picture suggests that things were once different.
  • This Is My Side: Each person's possessions mainly stay on their own floor, but the couple can't agree on which way the framed picture should hang.
