| beautiful and interesting animation short
A well-made, layered animation short which asks questions about the things we elect to see (or not to see) in our lives. There's quite a vivid and fertile visual imagination at work here, but the work also seems rooted in a certain artistic tradition. I would not be wholly surprised to discover that the various makers of the movie were great admirers of the work of Hiëronymus Bosch.

The first scenes on the beach gave me a certain chill, because they reminded me of a real-life anecdote. A couple of years ago, a friend of mine was spending the weekend in a Belgian seaside city, together with his wife. The pair were spending a lazy midday demolishing a vast plate of seafood, when they suddenly noticed a tiny girl of four or five roaming the street all on her lonesome. My friend and his wife ran out of the restaurant in order to intercept the little girl, who was dressed only in sandals and a swimsuit. They immediately warned the various authorities guarding the beach. The child was soon reunited with her parents. So far this is an unremarkable little tale, but what makes the story so strange is that the girl had wandered off at least an hour earlier, without the parents noticing. How can two normal adults fail to supervise their offspring playing next to a vast body of water ? And, especially, how can they fail to notice one of their offspring getting lost for at least an hour ?

Questions to ponder...
