Storyline

Three kingdoms, floating separately in space, can each see the other nearby kingdoms but have no means to communicate or visit. Each has developed a fanatical obsession for a specific color for clothing, architecture, and even plant life: one blue, one red, one golden. A forbidden inter-kingdom romance and a war of conquest ensues when a means of travel between the kingdoms is abruptly found. Written by Dave Heston <heston@iName.com>

speech? who needs that? not this great film from the 80s
9 December 2004 | by (Winnipeg, Canada) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this at Expo 86 in Vancouver when i was four. somehow, I have a tape of it. Not an official one mind you, it has some other Canadian Airline conference taped right after it, and the tracking is terrible. But I have watched it a countless amount of times, and have brought it to two of my university fine arts classes. It's a simple, funny, and overall entertaining adventure of a film. The settings open up like a pop-out book, and they use that feature to change scenes in some humorous ways. None of the actors actually talk, but emit sounds (ie: beeps, morse-code, etc...). This may seem cheesy, but never gets annoying and adds a unique touch that keeps this film fun and different. Not to mention the deep implications of the colours of the three kingdoms. Rainbow War sparked my imagination when I was younger, and it still entertains me years later. A great film.
