a masterpiece
4 January 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Its realism is the basic virtue. Because it is a short animation about little people , the social pressure,the mockeries , the less sense of life for them, the dfferent forms of social isolation - from autism to schizoidia. The story of Edmond is, first, admirable craft. Second - it is the story of its public because each of us dreams to an idealistic refuge, could be victim of a "revelation", could make the great tournament of his life. That gives to this short film the status of masterpiece in my opinion.
