Some meaning to it but hides it well behind a load of `deep' animation and dialogue
1 November 2003 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Two children start out as friends who eat processed cheese and play under the underpass. However as they hit puberty things change for them and they become awkward sexually - a trend that continues into adulthood.

Starting out with weirdly sexual graphics and images, this short continues that trend using a mix of animation styles. The story is not too bad to follow but is made more difficult by the dialogue and images which seem to be deliberately impenetrable and hard to read. I get the impression that the film has caught `art student syndrome' which is where a short has to be perceived to be `deep' and hard to understand if it is to be accepted by fellow `artists'. I don't know if that's the case here but it definitely is hard to get into!

The animation is clever but overly explicit and not always pleasant to watch. It isn't used to help the narrative flow and just seems to be an attempt to use different styles whether it suits the material or not. There is meaning in there somewhere but I was only able to grab a theme and meaning or points were lost on me.

Overall I have respect for anyone who has creative talent in whatever field, but in this case I would rather than seen something that I could take something from rather than just being left cold by the slightly pretentious delivery.
