Came across the film by mistake but so so glad I did, truly a work of art, captivated my imagination like no other did.
Time Out saysA charming antidote to the technological thrust of Pixar, Dreamworks and the like, this Danish fantasy tale is told entirely through the use of marionettes. A wooden Prince Hal Tara sets off from his kingdom to avenge the apparent murder of his father, the Emperor of Hebalon, by their sworn enemy, the Zeriths. The characters’ strings – rather than being hidden – are integral to this moody revenge tale. The strings are literally the characters’ lifelines: one snip and they’re done for. And if you’ve ever wondered how a marionette can make love without all those strings getting tangled up? Well, that’s the point.
