Animation. A compact, full-color cut-out animation as ephemeral as the colors swimming on the surface of a soap bubble. The eternal round shape, the orb - sun, moon, symbol of the whole self - balloons its inimitable and joyous course through scene after scene of celestial delight, fixing at last as the mystical globe encasing the lovers whose course it has paralleled throughout the film. People who have shown OUR LADY OF THE SPHERE over and over have now decided it's OK to book this film.
