One of my favorite animated films! Brilliant animation and sound design., 20 February 2007
One of my favorite animated films! Brilliant animation and magnificent
sound design combined with elegant, simple puppets and beautiful
design. I love the bittersweet narration too. Few animated film have
this kind of poignancy and emotion. Chel White is a great filmmaker.
Making a puppet film with wooden artists models was a great idea. There
are lots of subtle sound effects that support the movements of the
puppets, like the sound of springs stretching, creaking and sproinging
that you hear when you twist those wooden models. It gives the film a
haunted, eerie quality. The gorgeous production design convincingly
delivers the sense of a dark carnival.
