Great animation..
28 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

"Two Sisters" (1990) won the award for best short film at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in 1991. "There are islands in the sea where people hide away", "There are sharks out there" and "Lucky I have you" are again some of the mysterious one liners she scripts in prompting the viewers to think of newer meanings implied in the situation. This paint frame movie is a heart moving account of the harsh actualities of relationships, human nature and the eventual reality that serves as a check to limit our dreams and wishes. The frames have been appropriately used with the right mix of exaggerations introduced from time to time. For instance the scene where Viola walks through the corridor to the ceiling of the room and then drops head-on to the floor depicting perhaps the boredom she experiences living enclosed in the same dark room. Expression through character gestures and frequent zooming in and out of the frames renders life to her animation. The drawings are dark and disfigured, which might have been done on purpose. This however generates a sense of negativity and disgust in the minds of the viewers which again is indicative of the stereotype of beauty and aesthetics that we have created among ourselves and in this world. This possibly is an intentional style she prefers to adopt here.
