Unattainable
4 March 2004 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

I love it! The music is wonderful. The symbolism and characters are awesome.

The story is about Pierrot trying to obtain the unattainable, the moon. He struggles to bring it to him but cannot. Harlequin appears to entertain Pierrot (sword play, juggling, and dance). Pierrot is distraught, so Harlequin summons his girlfriend, Columbine to help assess the situation. Columbine is a showy babe, Pierrot knows. She's useless as for getting the moon for Pierrot. Tired from a hard night's work and mishap, Pierrot gives up. All that in 7 minutes! It's pretty neat for that era of film.
