Is this an invented star chart, or perhaps an abstract landscape of the hustle and bustle of a city? The fantastic combines with the abrasively realistic, and we are led to a “sense of place” that does not exist anywhere. Miró’s abstract landscape drawings and black and white etchings, along with depictions of dust and garbage at the base of things – the joy of full animation can be felt in each detail. A film that can be described as a compilation of its creator’s thirty years of artistic endeavors.
