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

Lost in a jazzy, cyberpunk reverie
6 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

A daringly innovative trip into sci-fi awesomeness, Strange Frame: Love and Sax truly is a diamond in the rough. From its jazz infused soundtrack to Claudia Black's spellbinding voice, the film is an audiovisual "galvanizer." And if Black's soothing narration doesn't make your heart skip a beat, maybe voice acting vets Tara Strong and Cree Summer can do the trick! I would be doing the film injustice by saying its cast is made up of simple stars. Stars? These guys are Solar System titans of Ganymedian proportion! Two words. Tim. Curry. that is all... The visual style is so eye-catching and unique, that it can only be described as an intergalactic fever-dream. Although the story could be seen as pretty standard sci-fi fare, the film's overall ambition and vigorous creativity ultimately shine through, giving a breath of fresh air to a much-beloved genre that (as of late) has unfortunately plummeted to the nether regions of "same ol' same ol'" I am amazed by and thankful for the film's use of LGBT themes, which are neither played for laughs nor jammed down our throats with pseudo- respect and sympathy. Strange Frame is not a gay love story, but a love story (and that's how gay love stories are done right!) It is also refreshing to see such themes reflected in not only a sci-fi film but an animated film. The soundtrack transcends mere praise. From classics like Pink Floyd (and the masterpiece that is "the gunner's dream") to (at least for me) new-found gems like Shelley Doty (what an artist!) the music in Strange Frame will resound in your mind long after the credits have rolled. If you're a fan of sci-fi and animation do yourself a favor and check this film out...just pop the corn, lay back and hold on to the dream! ;)
