Charming -- and That's More Than Good Enough
10 February 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

A small bird flies into a clothes line, where it encounters a pair of feet. Over the years, it follows the feet as they grow up.

Fans of silent movies may know shorts like AMOR PEDESTRE, in which only the feet of the players are seen, as they go through their courtship and subsequent comedy. This animated short from Russia plays with the same idea. It is utterly charming, and amusing and chilling as theactress, whose feet we see, changes abruptly, again and again, as does the nature of the line she dances on, while the small bird chirps encouragingly.

It's all very symbolic, although if the symbols are meant to stand for anything specific -- the soul, the universe, a good friend -- I can't tell what it is. Sometimes we need to accept that something is charming and let it stand at that. A deep pool may be beautiful, but put your hand in it and its beauty vanishes. Take your hand out and the beauty will return.
