Curtain!

This film is pervaded by an imaginative fairytale-like tone tinged with Gothic touches, combining the contours of a number of children’s heroes and legendary figures. The characters’ shapes and colours have been simplified to the max, to the bare essence of their primary mark, to the point that they are only recognisable for their silhouette, their externality. Like this, we see how the empty forms are filled by a projection that is both light and the (eternal) desire to see more.
