Bittersweet
This was cute animated short film, filled with tenderness and nostalgia, having also a quite original and well made aesthetic, heavily influenced by dystopian and steam-punk stories.

Even when the aspect of the human characters isn't anything special, the designs of the mechanical creatures (referred by the narrator as "things") and the sceneries is truly beautiful, with a wonderful use of colors and shapes, with very stylish results.

However, it is the nice story what makes this short special, being mostly a fable about how caring about a living being could result in something positive, despite the indifference of the others. The ending is particularly bittersweet and melancholic, though I guess that it fits with overall tone of the story.
