A delicate and secluded ceramist sees his orderly life turn upside down, when a gigantic hand in a white glove invades his space, demanding that a sculpture of itself is made. When will the hand's obstinate demands stop?
The bizarre adventures of the cartoon character Foska, drawn by 22 animators working in collaboration. Each animator worked on his or her own sequence only, and did not know what action ... See full summary »
From the opening credits: "An experimental film (...) made without camera, by drawing directly upon 35 mm film with an ordinary pen and ink." Various abstract shapes interact and transform into one another.
The plot essentially follows a frog-man who enters a "hexed" house in order to lift the curse.
The incoherent, if existent, plot may remind some people of Forbbben Zone. The animation is beautiful, and full of rich colors; in addition, the music is eerie and well-fitting to the story. The song Don't Go in the Basement, performed by Danny Elfman who also scored this piece, was just as fun and strange as the movie itself
It is an enjoyable, outlandish piece of animation, and is worth taking five minutes to appreciate.
I would recommend it to every Danny or Richard Elfman fan as well as those who love anything bizarre.
