As the lights of a carnival midway dim, a huge tiger emerges from the dark. As it walks through the city, illuminated plants flourish in its path. It approaches a large apartment building: a napping man's TV goes off, he wakes and walks to the window, sees the tiger and is transformed into a monkey. Similar transformations occur as the tiger walks through the city: cars become snails, football fans become insects, hipsters outside a club become toucans. The tiger reaches a hilltop outside the city. Behind him in the city, plants glow and the air is full of flying creatures. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

This Brazlian Short Sure Is Different
23 September 2008 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This short animated film from Brazil is a strange one, like many in the collection of "Animation Show" DVDs. However, that's part of why it is in the collection: it's different, it's original, it gets your attention and offers unique visuals. Many times the story is very short or even non-existent, as I think it is here, unless I missed it.

A big puppet, being walked through a big city area, turns people into insects, fish, birds or animals whenever he passes by them. The tiger is being moved by three shadowy human figures while the people are in animated form. It's different.

What I liked just as much as the visuals was the music of Zeroum, which offers a driving beat to the story..
