A tremendous, free-wheeling comedy with no real plot but an amazing energy that makes it great fun to watch
30 July 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pinedo works in a garage and is being chased by the law despite his quiet life. Father Lucas is a kind, generous man who has great skills in making friends, being kind and avoiding dog mess on the street. Their two stories become intertwined with a producer trying to keep costs down for a lousy short film, a man mistakenly turning up in fancy dress for a normal party, a young boy with an axe, a short sighted game keeper, a bored doorman, 30 or 40 helicopters and horses, running horses.

No. No, it doesn't actually make anymore sense when you watch it either but what it does do is race through the film with a great energy and an unrestrained sense of creativity and imagination mixed with a real flair for the funny. The plot is less important than this although it is actually interesting and it all hangs together in a sort of way that is quite hilarious at times while still not actually meaning anything. I could imagine that this energy without plot could annoy those who had other expectations but I find it hard to believe that the casual viewer would not be own over by the joy that is this little film.

For all the producer's comments the film is very polished and very professional. It mixes puppets with live action, hyper style with sweeping landscape shots, the reality of the plot with the reality of it just being a film. It is hard to describe but I could not imagine it being put together in a better way or being delivered in a more enjoyable package! The cast all buy into it and they all add to the fantastic feel of the film and the feeling of them all being real but also of another world – meanwhile the narrator speaks so fast that it is hard to even keep up with the subtitles.

Overall this was a wonderful find for me and alone justified the price I paid of the DVD short films collection I bought to get it! The direction is superb, the writing is energetic and hilarious even if it has very little in the way of traditional narrative and the film is a joy to watch as it rips its way across the screen in a total blaze of unrestrained energy and creativity.
