A heavy burden hangs over Conor's head:
Impending loss; an existential dread.
Enter: an anthropomorphic tree.
Can its fables set him free?
Impressive (dark) visuals. Tears to be shed.
Time, loss and grief (with its profound feeling of sinking).
Watching, there were fluctuations in my thinking:
From 'I'm gonna cry. Where's my hankie?'
To 'Ugh, now this feels wanky.'
To me, a misstep: sheeted neighbour, with memory shrinking.
This whimsical film is pure delight, Exquisite use of darkness and light. It's successfully ambitious, And the food props look delicious. It'll induce kooky dreams tonight!
