Let me just say that this is a beautiful short, a beautiful looking short that is. Three stories connected by a Narrator's voice over, which in itself becomes jarring and exposes an inherent weakness in visual story-telling. The director draws you in from the beginning and the high quality production values are apparent from the start. Coloured and imagined for a very demanding visual audience that wants to be impressed. BUT in essence there is no story and it tries to be too clever then it really is as none of the three stories has visual connections hence all hangs on the captivating narrative voice. In all honesty, the filmmakers are guilty of trying to be too clever forgetting that story is key.
