A story about a friendship
10 January 2005 | by LandscapeSee all my reviews

In the beginning Gustav saved Knuffi's life. They stayed together until Eva shows up. Knuffi wants to date Eva - but she resents him. She takes Gustav with her on the run. They get on the snake ship that is powered by astonishing analog machinery. Several years -and daughters- later they meet Knuffi again... The constructions and buildings are very cute, excellent work, and the camera work is also good, the actors and the soundtrack are o.K. The story: it is a far out fairy tale, you can compare it with Shrek. A narrator guides through the story, and I would have preferred less guidance and more insaneness. The insaneness comes through in details, the story rests in straightness. Two aspects that troubled me: It is my opinion that there is too much of ministers pissing in it. (You know about them from the trailer, I don't think I'm spoiling here.) It's getting boring after a while. The creation acts are male humor too, and the first is very good. And then there are some political parties badges that will substitute the Knuffi Reich's insignia. It is a very short scene, but it is a disaster. All fantasy slips away in this scene, all humor is lost, and the worst of all: the ministers demystify the Reich's Insignia. All other decoration details aren't explained in detail, they are open for the viewers fantasy, and that is how they should be handled. And no other scene intervenes with the real world - only this one has politics, and it fails. Dramatically.
