More like a movie maker's calling card than an actual film...
This short looks as if the film makers really weren't intending to make a film in any traditional sense. Instead, it's almost like a calling card where they show off their many skills--demonstrating to perspective investors that they have tremendous talent. But, as for the story, it just seemed secondary...and very surreal. In fact, you might go so far as to say it doesn't really have a narrative. It's more like a series of often disparate images linked, tenuously, by highly creative transitions--almost like bits and pieces of a dozen dreams all strung together. As far as its watchability goes, it's only fair. As a demonstration of talent, it is mesmerizing. Wonderfully evocative music, highly creative camera work and the ability to do so much without any dialog is quite clever. Not a great film by any stretch, but I'd love to see what these people could do given more time, financing and a longer format.
