Storyline

When Day, a sunny fellow, encounters Night, a stranger of distinctly darker moods, sparks fly! Day and Night are frightened and suspicious of each other at first, and quickly get off on the wrong foot. But as they discover each other's unique qualities--and come to realize that each of them offers a different window onto the same world-the friendship helps both to gain a new perspective.

Quotes

[Day and Night find themselves in front of a radio station, where a voice can be heard only when Day is in front of it]
Radio voice: Fear of the unknown... They are afraid of new ideas... They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon anything in reality, but based on... "If something is new, I reject it immediately because it's frightening to me." What they do instead is just stay with the familiar. You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

mumble jumble message
22 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Day and Night are two beings who project vistas of daytime and nighttime on their bodies. They are as different as night and day but eventually they find similarities in their opposites. There is a quote from self-help guru Wayne Dyer and the two characters find common ground in the dusk of the sunset.

It's trying to say something. I'm guessing followers of Dyer would be crying over the profound message of the movie. I don't know Dyer from the average Joe. It's just a bunch of prosaic mumble jumble to me. In the end, it's an intriguing idea that is more showy than actually profound or compelling.
