Editors Note
Note Largely unseen by the public at Oscar time, 2007's Academy Award-nominated short subjects are given their due in this collection of these remarkable live-action and animated films. Included here are the Oscar winners "The Mozart of Pickpockets," in which a homeless boy becomes a good-luck charm for a pair of unsuccessful thieves, and the animated "Peter & the Wolf," a dark retelling of Prokofiev's musical tale of a boy, his animal friends, and a certain carnivorous wolf. Also featured here are the live-action nominees "At Night," "The Substitute," "Tanghi Argentini," "The Tonto Woman," and the animated nominees "I Met the Walrus," "Madame Tutli-Putli," "Even Pigeons Go to Heaven," and "My Love."
