A race of superior beings who master knowledge through the use of technology , work is carried out by an inferior race of tiny slaves. Surrealistic scenarios and an excellent music
15 November 2004 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

This sci-fi movie, has a curious and very strange plot that strikes you from the very beginning. You have a race of superior beings (Draags) who master all branches of knowledge through the use of technology which liberates them from work, work which is carried out by an inferior race of tiny human-like slaves (Oms). This exquisite story is backed up by extremely surrealistic scenarios and an excellent music. Animated characters representing this ruling race are well-conceived and far apart from stereotypes. You enter a weird world with a fantastic atmosphere which satisfies the most demanding whims of this genre's fans. Though the plots looks simple in appearance it is a clever political satire.
