We found beautiful chess animation on Google Video, the open online marketplace where people share their kinematic efforts (it's all free and legal). The film by Brent Forrest is a love story set on a chessboard – impressive to watch a real game develop – and to the strains of Johann Strauss' Fledermaus overture. Bet you've never seen a pawn cry.
Well, actually, yes we have. We saw it for the first time courtesy of the Chess Maniac way back in March this year.
