The Darkest Truth About Love is a short animation whose charm lies in the fact that it manages to be both depressing and uplifting simultaneously. In less than two minutes of expertly minimal animation we are told, among other things, that ‘we will never find the right person’ and that ‘we are irredeemably alone.’

The content is based on the writings of Alain De Botton, a famous scholar and philosopher whose work regularly deals with the process of falling in and out of love.

The irresistible illustrated short, set in motion to the music of Tom Rosenthal, was hand-illustrated and animated frame by frame by Hanna Jacobs and Lara Lee. Both of them recently graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Animation.

Whether you believe the uncomfortable truths about falling in and out of love, it will be hard not to fall in love with The Darkest Truth About Love. If you have two minutes to spare, give this animation a try. Enjoy!
