Very interesting
10 May 2003 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Quite brilliant animation about a woman who gets sent to hell for not keeping up the payments on her washing machine. Her skeleton then pops back out of the grave in order to collect her precious handbag. Then the devil comes back to reclaim her soul. Then it gets weird.

The animation is superb, and the whole film looks a little bit like that old favourite TV show Trapdoor. It's packed full of odd little details like the words on the contract or the newsreader on the television or the fact that the little girl is practically bald. The characters look fantastic, particularly the French style devil and the whole film is immensely enjoyable. And it ends with a scene very much like Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life, with the "waffer thin mint" becoming a chocolate eclair.
