Aesthetically pleasing
17 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This short film is supposedly based on a book of children's dreams and takes the form of an old man narrating his life – a life of lost love, of card-playing robots, of walrus armies, of hand-grenades for a heart and other such follies. Although as a story this film is a total throwaway, it is worth seeing for the pleasure that can be taken from the flow of images and situations throughout. The story makes no sense in some ways but at least hangs together, while the visuals and randomness of the story is engaging.

Visually it is well presented – not the most slick or seamless effects perhaps, but it still looks good and I enjoyed the invention and overall design of it. The device of the narrator correcting himself doesn't play particularly well but the voice work is good from the old man and it does rather draw you in because it sounds as good as it looks. There isn't much beyond the pleasure of the sound and look of it all, but for me there was enough in those to make it worth a watch.
