Cheap images for a cheap story
10 June 2013 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

That's possibly the worst French animated movie I've seen in my long life.

Graphically, it's a cheap Japanese manga clone; Big Eyes Small Mouth, long still sequences, etc. Although a percentage of mangas have some personality put in the art, this short film is not one of them. This is a classic example of graphical garbage with no redeeming qualities.

What's worse, the narration is a disaster. The characters have zero-personality and act with no sensible motivations. A love scene comes out of nowhere, not making any sense, and is corny to the extreme, complete with Hollywood-like orchestral music, glitter, and even literal ascension to the 7th sky (as they say in French). The smaller things make no more sense; for example, one guy lights a cigarette, takes one puff only, then tosses it away, accidentally starting a fire. Hard to find a lower form of plot device.

At this point, it's not necessary to enumerate the numerous other flaws of this pile of clichés. Skip that one; watch instead something fun, or clever, or emotional, or interesting in any way.
