28th century, 200 years after the Great Earth Exodus. Naia, a feisty, young singer/songwriter, falls in love with the beautiful saxophonist Parker in Ganymede, one of Jupiter's moons. The two form a band - and now they have to not only make it as musicians but also to fight for their freedom. Dramatically rendered in rich, hand drawn animation, Strange Frame brings us into a world of space pirates, indentured slaves and genetic mutations - infused with music throughout, to create a dreamlike tale unlike anything you've ever seen. Written by GB Hajim

Eye Candy
28 April 2013 | by ricwarren-1See all my reviews

A beautifully animated dreamlike adventure pulsating with sensuality and rock and roll. An instant cult classic in the spirit of 'Fantastic Planet' (La Planete Sauvage), 'Heavy Metal' with underpinnings of 'Fritz the Cat' and 'Blade Runner'. The character voices are interesting with Tim Curry and Claudia Black standing out. The music is reminiscent of the girl rock sound of the early seventies. Think 'Beyond the Valley of the Dolls' meets 'Heart'. The story is complex enough to stay interesting without losing anyone. But, the cut-out style of the animation shows just how creative the animators were to elevate this type of video game style imagery to special heights. Try to see this film in as large a format as you can. It's quite impressive on a extra big TV or at the theater.
