Great use of light and sound to showcase a decaying landscape
Was lucky enough to catch this in a theatrical screening.
Brilliantly captures the feeling of ennui that one can feel in a run-down urban area... cannot emphasize that enough. The art direction in this area more than makes up for the limited animation in other areas.
As far as tone goes: its a great dark comedy, very dry sense of humor... I laughed out loud several times.
Definitely would recommend trying to seek this out if it plays an arthouse theater near you, or keep an eye out for if/when it arrives on VOD.
