made of an unknown light and invisible matter
30 June 2017 | by indiescifi451See all my reviews

"Parade of the Planets" gives you an illusory airy, gauzy feeling. It's woven of a light and some invisible matter - hard to catch, yet impossible not to feel. It's late in the afternoon, the sky is still crystal, but you feel the air is thicker, there's a sense of doom all around... the thunder is coming. The storm that will wash away everything. We won't even see it, probably, but the feeling itself is overwhelming.

The film, a continuous surreal metaphor shot in the everyday life style, may seem a little hard to interpret without knowing the context, but everyone can appreciate the incredible sense of weightlessness and doom it manages to combine.
