This is a great film. I already saw it at the Stuttgart Animation Festival. It's perfectly executed, it has a story and an issue, it has style. And it's basically animated in 2D although there's a depth in each image rarely met by 3D productions.

Have a close look at the character animation: see how everything is composed of painted images, moved in cutout fashion with a touch of warping here and there. The head turns are especially interesting: he uses but one inbetween of a blurred face from front to side. (And I have that strange feeling that I already wrote about it ...)

This method of compositing characters of many tiny images can be found as well in the work of Yuri Norstein (, albeit he still works completely analogue. Watch some of his films and relish the atmosphere and deepness !
