To a song of love lost and rediscovered, a woman sees and undergoes surreal transformations. Her lover's face melts off, she dons a dress from the shadow of a bell and becomes a dandelion, ants crawl out of a hand and become Frenchmen riding bicycles. Not to mention the turtles with faces on their backs that collide to form a ballerina, or the bizarre baseball game. From the melting clocks and hourglass sand, to the figure rendered in strips, to the character covered in eyeballs, the style and themes of Dalí are clearly recognizable throughout. Written by

What a delightful combination- a hauntingly sweet song paired with Dali inspired animation. I found the animation to be more old-style Disney, not like the cookie-cutter cartoons more recently produced. It was flowing and lyric, a perfect accompaniment to the music.
The Dali fan will find countless images from his paintings, brought to life and presented in a graceful, dreamlike world. Images meld one into another in a way that Dali was not able to utilize in still art. He might give the *impression* of transformation, but in Destino, you see it come to pass.
It is an airy cruise through melancholy, romance, and longing. For me it was most thought-provoking, but not heavy or depressing. Definitely recommended!
