Doesn't Strike Home
26 May 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Joost Lieuwma's simple silent cartoon of a young man who refuses to leave home and live an independent life is a nicely executed little effort, with some psychological truisms in it despite an overtly manipulative solution to the problem. The artwork is simple, almost childish, and that works to reflect to childish nature of the boy who won't leave home.

The problem with this work is that it needn't have been a cartoon. Oh, there is a short sequence beginning about the 4:30 mark when his house follows him, but that lasts maybe fifteen seconds. The rest of the movie could have been done live and the one section of extreme fantasy could have been executed in CGI. Animation is as inappropriate to this story as if it had been done as a tap dance.
