This was the first work of the french animator René Laloux( director of animated films like "Fantastic Planet" "Time Masters" and "Gandahar") Like his other works, this short has a strange story and strange visuals as well. However, it still was pretty interesting to watch, mostly because Laloux manages to create a fascinating and a unique world, even with very little resources.
Apparently, Laloux made this short as part of a experiment with patients of a psychiatric institution (This fact will explain a lot of things) Still, I think this is a fascinating, unusual animation, very much like the other works of René Laloux.
