Storyline

28th century, 200 years after the Great Earth Exodus. Naia, a feisty, young singer/songwriter, falls in love with the beautiful saxophonist Parker in Ganymede, one of Jupiter's moons. The two form a band - and now they have to not only make it as musicians but also to fight for their freedom. Dramatically rendered in rich, hand drawn animation, Strange Frame brings us into a world of space pirates, indentured slaves and genetic mutations - infused with music throughout, to create a dreamlike tale unlike anything you've ever seen. Written by GB Hajim

artsy indie thing won't appeal to everyone
19 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Years ago I used to occasionally read a sci-fi comics magazine called Heavy Metal, which for all I know still exists. It was full of perplexing, often pointless narratives told somewhat incoherently, and was notable mainly for its weird art and fondness for sexy girls.

Strange Frame reminds me of that. True, the sexy girls are seen from a lesbian view rather than the straight guy view of most of Heavy Metal, but sexy girls are sexy girls.

Besides Heavy Metal, the movie reminds me of East Village indie magazines from the 80s and fan fiction.

For me, the movie felt amateurish and slack. The animation did nothing for me.

But it reminds me of other things people like that I don't like, so if you like East Village underground art, Heavy Metal, or bad fan fiction, you might love this. I did not.
