The film shows a strong bond between two brothers who live in a remote fjord with their parents. We look into their world through the eyes of the younger brother and follow him on a journey marking a turning point in the brothers' lives.

An anthology film set in colonial Africa in the late 19th century telling the stories of 5 different characters: a troubled king, a middle-aged Pygmy working in a luxury hotel, a failed businessman on an expedition, a lost porter and a young army deserter.
Positives: The French & adjoining northern regions produce great animations especially stop-motion. Sweden even got into the game with a bonus short. The craftsman(woman)ship for the characters, props, settings were, as far as I could tell, all magnificently crafted from wool (or it's compressed analogue - felt). So kudos for all that.
Negative: For the casual viewer the stories (supposedly satirical, metaphorical, symbolic) seemed too obscure with a fragmented flow.
Conclusion: Entertaining, but not something I'm going to remember.
