A labour of love
The story's about the life of a junkie circus elephant and the filth of the human society who want to make money off him.
The movie is quite sad and will bring out emotions in the viewer which are normally not associated with animation. Animation does seem to be the right medium for this real-life inspired tragedy.
Its a tribute from the director to a brother who lost his life to drugs. Obviously once one knows the history this movie is borne out of, it becomes easier to appreciate the story.
Joachim Nielsen, rest in peace. If you are up there watching this, i hope you enjoyed it as much as i did.
