Fine is a fantastic short by Italian filmmaker Virgilio Villoresi that tells the story of the life and death of soldier.

Here is some more about it from Virgilio himself:

The movie is inspired by the concept of hand painting, very close to the works of Italian artist Mariotti and the finger videos movement. Dedicated transitions created with the technique of the shuft pan has been used to create a true cinematografic editing through the hand. Both the initial and final soundtrack, as well as the military salute of the last scene are a homage to Jiri Trnka’s masterpiece The Hand.

A great film and a great example of how to create puppetry with (literally) just your hand!
