Storyline

The moon tells us he's never seen anything like the story of the loveless couple in a castle by the sea. The queen has cut off her head and dispatches her squeeze-box playing husband, who hangs out in a coffin, to find her a new head. He complies, sailing off to a city on a mountain, bringing back one, then two, then four heads. She tries each one on, and her advisor, a sort of witch doctor, advises against each. What will the husband do? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not Just Humor, But A Real Visual Treat
3 August 2010 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This is listed under the "humor" section of the "Animation Express" DVD but I think it should have been under the "Visual Delights" because this is just incredible artwork - a fantastic piece of "eye candy." The superb details and colors come out even better under the Blu-Ray version of this DVD, highlighting the work of artists under the Film Board Of Canada title.

It's a horror story but will bring a few laughs to you, too, in addition to the theme of chopping people's heads off and using them as possible replacement heads.

Yeah, it's a little weird but definitely worth a look. I won't ruin the ending because it's a surprise one, and a satisfying one despite the sordid situation on this strange island.
