    I Am Simon is an animation short film and a master diploma project made in Moholy-Nagy Unisversity of Art and Design, Budapest, 2009. Simon is a dog who spends his whole time with his friends and they have way-out runs together until one of them gets injured. 
  • "Tünde Molnar's graphic novel recounts the life and death of the dog Simon. Its rich and melancholic images capture a moment of transition in which time seems to come to a standstill. At the same time, they speak of an intense love of life, and of a desire to run faster than death in order to outwit time through speed. While this may end fatally, there is consolation in viewing the continuation of beginnings and ends through the dead dog's eyes. With its poetic imagery and reduced text, "I am Simon" succeeds in conveying the notion of a span of life in admirable brevity. here is no distinction between joy and sorrow, the two are inseparable. And this is the film's extraordinary achievement: with great skill it succeeds in tapping the full potential of animation in order to turn a dog's life into an utterly and existentially human experience."
