Well observed and delivered bittersweet piece on commercialization of art
There must be an element of the personal in this film from Chel White. The plot is a sort of romance between a contortionist and a member of the audience who becomes fascinated by her. It is played out in very simple and nostalgic style, with wooden marionettes animated by stop- motion. The dry voice-over from the lead character sets a tired tone which contrasts nicely with the more fanciful setting of the circus, and the wonder of the act. It takes the viewer there in the end, as the story sees a moment of nature beauty that is appreciated in the moment, is stretched out for profit and commercialized to the point where it loses the spark of creative spontaneity that it had in the first case.
The film delivers this well, and leaves a bittersweet memory to the film, but doesn't hammer it to the point where it becomes bitter in itself.
