Storyline

It is raining while a writer is working on a new idea. He draws inspiration from the rain, and raindrops become locations for vivid images from his imagination. The character Colombine from commedia dell'arte appears, and then dances alone. Her lover Pierrot joins the scene and attempts to get her attention, but Colombine spurns him. Later, Colombine rides alone in a horse-drawn carriage. Pierrot hitch-hikes for a ride, but is brokenhearted when she ignores him. The vivid images end when the candle in the artist's room dies down. As the artists struggles to light it again and get back to work, the film ends. Written by Dimos I

Assume imagination
8 July 2019 | by mrdonleoneSee all my reviews

In all its beauty, Inspiration lacks to have a clear story to inspire; still, it manages to keep things up to date. Glassy imagination, keeps the dreamers among us going for quite some wet nights after seeing this one.
