Splendid little film
4 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Really, this film is just what it is, a small fantasy with some real heart. Downgrading it for lack of greater meaning is really missing the point, and not just about Lovely. I only wish I could find a digital copy so I could share it with friends.

Although one could deconstruct it into any number of mostly related meanings about existence, work, and our relationship to the modern world, I prefer to consider it as a sort of visual tone poem (a light poem?) that plays with those areas, makes some soft suggestions about them, but primarily is just here to be enjoyed. It's interesting that the people involved have had some other experience, but never really went on to do a lot in film. I've seen early works by noted filmmakers that were less satisfying by far.
