What a beautiful nightmare! Kawamoto combines classic stop-motion animation with monochromatic images to create a chilling little fable with Kafka-like overtones. flashbulb phantoms of this film linger in the brain...

Wonderful farce! Chilling and hilarious at the same time.

It probably had a point, some allegorical insight into the state of the human condition, but right now I'm too cynical to really care.

One of many little know geniuses.

animator is great and prose is priceless
