I'll be the first to admit that I don't often enjoy experimental films. But every once in a while there comes along a film that makes you more than willing to delve back into the realm of that type of work. This short piece took my breath away, the visuals timed flawlessly with the haunting score in the background is a true marvel. Shapes become recognizable and then back. There is a haunting quality to this work, and I found myself gaping during the film at the sheer painful beauty of it. There is no word other I can think of than 'exquisite' to describe the majesty of this experimental tour de force. My only regret is that I can't find more of Robert Seidel's exemplary work!
Morir de amor (2005)
Morir de Amor is a charming little tale. It's a story that focuses on two caged parrots reminiscing of memories past as their owner sleeps nearby. A rather important memory that the owner was not privy to. While the beginning starts out rather ho hum it quickly recovers with its quirky charm, humor, and rather subtly becomes rather poignant as the story nears completion. The style in which the film is done works for it, and the music choices are spot on! Definitely an enjoyable film to watch, it got thunderous applause at the festival. And I guarantee you, after this short film, the name "Pedro" will no longer be just a Napoleon Dynamite favorite.
I just had the chance to see this piece of work at a short film animation festival this evening, and this is one of the ones that stuck with me. I didn't like it, but I certainly didn't hate it. It simply stuck out to me as extremely well done, and much different than most of the work at the festival. The story is rather simple, but the visuals and movements of the objects and camera give it that compelling edge. The style it's done in is refreshingly unique, and in its entirety is hauntingly drawing. You simply cannot look away. The sounds used bring forth feelings that are uneasy, but work well. Overall, a pleasure to watch.
