Animation. In many ways a more searching, and certainly a more complex film than OUR LADY OF THE SPHERE. We are first presented a cobweb castle, filled with the haunting doubts of the young protagonist. Spirits appear on the screen and are heard on the soundtrack. Gradually a female guide emerges and escorts the young man into an antechamber to another (and possibly higher) world.
"Pulsating lights, undulating objects, combined with a rich and full color sense." - Donald Miller, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
