SUCH a delight!! I love this film, I love riddles, I love the style of animation and look of the illustration courtesy of the incredibly talented Masayoshi Nakamura and Fiona Smyth, I love Dan Rosato’s score, and most of all I love Director Winnie Cheung’s vision that helmed this project and created this 6:00 piece. Its reminiscent a little of the 2006 Docu-comedy The Artistocrats, in that is deconstructs how multiple people interpret and dissect the same information or ideas. But it’s a million times more visual and imaginative and it could easily be a series, in this fan’s humble opinion im juuusssstttt hopin sayin’.
Albatross Soup is a delightfully fluid animation that lyrically complements a chorus of voices attempting to investigate a puzzling suicide: A man gets off a boat. He walks into a restaurant and orders albatross soup. He takes one sip… pulls out a gun, and shoots himself to death. So…why did he kill himself?
