Storyline

The course of true love never did run smooth. Two octopi entwine in an embrace when a hand reaches from above, plucks them out of the water, disentangles them, tosses the male back in what now we see is a small aquarium, puts the female in a cold storage box, and heads for a delivery truck. He recovers from the initial shock and gives pursuit, grabbing the back of the truck as it leaves, then working himself to the front. As the driver tries to thwart his efforts to save his woman, the truck careens through the small coastal town. Will he succeed? Do other perils await? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

fresh air
6 September 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a small animation about love.not great, far to be memorable , but amusing, nice, lovely.a sort of gem without great ambitions but useful for few moments of free time. action, feelings and high perseverance. and the Greek air. all in the music sauce. it is one of the films who seduce. not exactly for story itself but for the grace of details, for rhythm and for crazy run. for the remember of old images and for unconventional subject. a fresh air. more about Greek spirit than the octopus love. an interesting work , not perfect but good for the manner to use the short time for present the story. so, a not bad choice for fun.
