Ummmmm... what? I'm sort of, kind of, really, really confused right now. This is one of those movies that after it finishes, you just kind of sit there, and wonder why this movie was the way it was. Whatever you might call it, Boy & the World is strange.
The animation is absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking, with colors flying everywhere, and splashes of red, green, blue, and purple filling up the screen. If it's not very coherent storywise (and it isn't), it succeeds in dazzling its viewers.
Now, the story is kind of a mess. Most of the time I can't understand what's going on, and I just roll with it, but it's not a good feeling.
But, if you like strange and beautiful films (If it even can be called a film; it's more like a moving painting), Boy and the World is great at being that.
