visually imaginative and unique
21 November 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

In the attic, little girl Andrejka's toys come alive. The doll Buttercup lives with her friends in a suitcase. While the friends are out to work, the Head attacks her with bugs. She tries to find her friends and is lured out by the Black Cat. Buttercup gets lost and taken by the rag-monster to be imprisoned by the Head in the Land of Evil. Grandma throws away plasticize Laurent. Teddy Bear and Sir Handsome set off to rescue Buttercup. Madam Curie is a communist mouse who organizes the masses to battle the Land of Evil.

This is visually imaginative and unique. The story is straight-forward. The material looks like stuff found under the couch. It has a grotesque amateur beauty. I don't think the story is anything special. It's Toy Story with less fun. The characters are interesting but lacks charisma due to the stiff facial expressions. This is a fascinating attempt.
