Set in a world of iron dirigibles and steam powered computers, this gothic horror mystery tells the story of Jasper Morello, a disgraced aerial navigator who flees his plague-ridden home on a desperate voyage to redeem himself.
In a bizarre world, a working man is awoken by his alarm clock. He shaves, dresses and has breakfast. An unknown man holds up his mirror. Three people make up his chair and table. A woman stands, at the door, working as his coat hanger. He hails a ride and rides piggyback all the way to work. At a traffic light, a group of humans riding humans await the light to change. There are two men hanging on a pole representing traffic lights. One opens his jacket and reveals a red shirt. Then he closes his jacket, so the other man can reveal his green shirt. He puts his coat and briefcase in a locker where a woman is hanging on the locker door working as his coat hanger and briefcase holder. He takes an elevator ride up, using a human counterweight. There, he begins his work as a doormat. His boss shows up, scrapes his feet on his back and enters his office. He continues to lay there in front of an office door. Written by
This is a story of a man who wakes up and goes to his work. It is simple story, but this has many unique scenes and is a little unrealistic. All the things he uses are human, from the table to the taxi. At first, I feel that this is full of humor and an interesting way of expression. However, I changed from the first image of this film and find the meaning of this title. Furthermore, I began to feel something fearful. It is because, of course, there is no dialogue and music, but mainly because of his astonishing action.
In addition, the sound of his snort is so cold and hopeless that I cannot help thinking about what working is. The way of feeling about it differs from person to person such as blue- and white-collar workers. This film is a symbol of working in modern society and might express the filmmakers own thoughts on this theme by the scene after the credits. Watching this film gives us a good opportunity to think the meaning of what we are doing every day.
