Yet another film I saw at Anim’est festival in Bucharest. With a distinctive illustration style and sensitive execution, this thoughtful film follows the exploits of a lumberjack who accidentally fells a tree, trapping himself and subsequently experiencing what it’s like to be a series of trapped animals. Ambiguous and with a subtle conservation message, the film left me with a slightly sad sense at the end, making me think about humans and our impact upon nature. Cleverly, the film also engages the audience with the ultimate fate of the lumberjack, which perhaps is all of us.
