Great animation and creative shots, but it doesn't really deliver

A character works his way out of his location and is taken to a tall tower in the distance. Covered with a thick layer of yellow post-it notes, the character moves slowly into a large chamber where two more notes are attached to him before he is sent back on his way. The next day, the loss of a couple of these precious notes, sees the character venturing outside of his set routine to recover them.

Before the title was even on the screen this film had done a great job with getting my attention. The burdened character covered in post-it notes is an image that myself and many other white collar workers will instantly understand. On top of this we have some very ambitious design in the wide landscape and in particular the high Gothic ceilings and buildings of the tower and chamber. All of this comes in the first 30 seconds or so and it held me easily. The large title slide has the downside of reminding you that the film has not yet started and indeed when it appeared I did wonder why this pre-title section stood alone.

Part of the reason is that, although we need the wider understanding of this world, the plot starts after the title. We get some insects robbing some notes and this triggers a journey during which the man's priorities and situations change. The plot device to start all this doesn't ring true (surely given how many notes the man is covered in, this would not be the first time such a thing has occurred – but yet it seems like it is). This gives us the problem that the actual plot is not as interesting as the opening pre-title material; the journey and the changes seem incredibly obvious in terms of what happens, but yet at the same time there is no real meaning or context to it and as much as I wanted to stay with it, I ended up not really being into it.

The animation is great throughout, with some particular shots or sequences being very well done, but the weak plot is lacking much in the way of meaning which does feel like potential has been wasted.
