It's okay...
29 July 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is one of the animated shorts from THE ANIMATION SHOW: VOLUME 2. Most of the shorts in this DVD collection are rather poor because very few are funny and the emphasis is much more or art than entertainment in this second installment. For better films overall, see VOLUME 1.

The characters in this odd film are artist's wooden dummies that move thanks to stop-motion. These jointed characters, as you probably know, are very pose-able but also lack faces and fingers. This posability is important in this film because it's about a wooden dummy who falls in love with another one who is a contortionist with the circus.

Of all the shorts in this compilation, this is perhaps the one that falls in the middle for me. It's not among the best nor the worst. It certainly is creative, but the story itself is only fair and the animation looks as if it was relatively simple to make compared to most animated films.
