a mannequin for all seasons
27 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

In keeping with the common style of Czech stop motion animation, "Klub odložených" ("The Club of the Laid Off" in English) has inanimate objects doing a series of weird things. In this case, the objects are mannequins. A bunch of old discarded ones spend their days traipsing around a Prague apartment, but some people dump a bunch of new discarded mannequins in the apartment. How are the two sets of mannequins supposed to get along? Since this is only the second Jiří Barta movie that I've seen, it's not fair to judge it against his entire repertoire; I did like "A Ballad about Green Wood" better, but this one's still OK. Nothing special, but certainly creative.
