A most unusual piece of work
17 October 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is one of the oddest and most unusual shorts that I've ever seen and I'm still not entirely certain what the point was (or even if there was one to start with) in this particular case. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada, this was nominated for an Academy Award and uses a type of stop-motion animation that reminds me of the work of Norman McLaren. Recommended for anyone who likes unusual animation.
