lovely immersion
20 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thrill seekers and those with vanishingly short attention spans should avoid this film. Folks who enjoy art and dreamlike stories will enjoy it. It invokes the format of a dream very effectively to engage viewers in their own relation to dreaming. We need more of this kind of media. The choice to avoid language is an important part of how the film becomes evocative. Its simplicity is deceptive, for it can draw from the viewer a 'deep,' lasting, and contemplative response. (There, I avoided flaming the previous incredibly obtuse comment.) In some ways the work is a platform for bringing its art and music to the fore, and the animation and story are containers for that: the colors, art, and music all work together excellently. The film won several awards, and appreciative reviews.
