In this tragically beautiful short-length animated film, we’re given a week through the dream-like eyes of the moon--a depressed gentle giant whose few friends include a pack of wolves, an invisible person, and a boy on a garbage pile in space. Mailmen in hot air balloons, the architecture of teeth, whales, birds, and ghostly clouds all make appearances.
I find this film to be as heart-breaking as it is hilarious, an experience that brings a little more magic into the world. It’s a half hour that can be watched again and again.
This limited first edition DVD comes with three additional animated shorts by the creators of this film. Plus: Full creator commentary track, theatrical trailer, and behind the scenes footage. Watch the trailer.
