    A movie clearly not for all tastes, but powerful proof of the mesmerizing and unique power of animation. A praise deserving one-man-show (Zilbalodis directs, writes, animates and even composes the music of the film), the film is evocative of atmospheric exploration video games from the 90s like Another World, with its no-words storytelling and no-explanations approach, and even in its aesthetic and rough animation, that clearly can be a detraction for a lot of viewers. But if you connect with the film, the trip is unforgettable.

    Robert Wise is one of the all-time greatest directors that is not very often recognised as such. Showing in every film a refined storytelling technique (you can clearly see that before being a director he was one of the greatest editors in the movie business, with impressive credits like Citizen Kane), but also a chameleonic adaptation to every genre (he has masterpieces in horror, Sci-Fi, drama, musicals…). This gritty boxing drama / film noir is not only one of the…
