“You will never find the right person.”

So begins ‘The Darkest Truth About Love’, a poignant animated short about love, longing and loneliness.

Based on the writings of renowned philosopher and scholar Alain De Botton, the video combines his bittersweet, pithy musings on love with beautiful animation that brings them vividly to life.

The two-minute short was created for London-based The School of Life by recent graduates Hannah Jacobs and Lara Lee.

Truthful and relatable, it makes for a thought-provoking watch.

Check out the animation below.
