A Presentation with a Lot of Bugs
12 April 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a film with very basic animation. It focuses entirely on the world of various bugs. As we are introduced to each of the species, they perform sophisticated dances. We have dung beetles and dragonflies and houseflies and a big black spider. They cavort and enjoy the world, even though danger lurks around every corner. There really is little plot and the repetition isn't that spellbinding, but this was the infancy of the art.
