Beautiful, inventive shadow puppet animation
21 September 2012 | by iper_figo_josephSee all my reviews

This film is a beautiful, poignant and creative shadow puppet style animation. If you're a fan of The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926) or Tales of the Night (2012) you'll love this little science fiction gem. The main character rides in on a mechanical horse and woos a young woman, who marries him and follows him back to his homeland where everything is mechanical, run on gears, and fake.

What works so well about the movie is the intricate details and care taken to make the world look elaborate and beautiful, while using these details as an aid to the story telling, never stopping to brag about what they accomplished or show off their hard work. The end result is a smooth narrative with a stunningly beautiful visuals, a rare feat for any film and an amazing achievement for a shadow puppet style movie.
