This is a rather unusual animated short film about the nature of addiction.  If you have ever been addicted to anything you may well recognise the compulsions that the protaganist - in this case a watch - goes through. 

Even though his addiction means placing himself in danger and knowingly so, it seems almost fated that he does what he does, that he has little or no choice in the matter.

This was a solo procuction by Tim van Hussen for his graduation from the Willem de Kooning Academy.  As such it is a very mature piece of animation for someone still learning his trade and congratulations must go to him for producing such a heartfelt and grownup piece.
