Hauntingly beautiful Gothic tale
9 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Kigeki or Comedy is a short film of only 11 minutes and that is enough to take the viewer on a journey that is as beautiful as it gets. It is a dark fairy tale that is presented with superb direction. The story is about a young girl's quest to save her village during the Irish war of independence by making a deal with an enigmatic swordsman. The short is very straightforward, the few dialogs it had, was fantastically given voice to and the voice acting fit the atmosphere perfectly. The art gave the anime a terrifying Gothic atmosphere filled with melancholy and made it look surreal, and the animations, especially during the action scenes were jaw dropping. You can almost feel the English horsemen riding through the dark grassy plains and the black swordsmen cutting them down like a birthday cake. And as an Icing to the cake is the music. It features Schubert's Ave Maria and Erlkönig, both tracks were great choices considering the atmosphere and will engulf the viewer's soul with beautiful melancholy.

The only fault of this short is it's length. After watching "Comedy" the viewer will only hope it was longer.Overall, this is a must watch for anyone who likes surreal or Gothic stories with top tier direction.
