Watch Disney’s Sweet Oscar-Nominated Short

Is this six-minute film, which is called Paperman and which is in the running for Best Animated Short at the Oscars, "the most romantic movie in years"?

To be honest, I found it pretty corny. But I was happy to see the Red Balloon homage at 5:39. And the animation is beautifully done.
