intriguing and definetely original visualization techniques. it's kind of like a dream you have when taking a nap in the mid-afternoon. it didn't really fit my liking but well made.

スープ、セーター、波、クッションなどから感じ取れる「質感」が好きです。bearcatさんの仰るとおり、展開の不思議さとある種の暗さが谷山浩子さんを彷彿とさせる気がします。

見終わってみると、小さな船乗りが、
子供だったのか、
犬だったのか、
船乗りの本能を持つ人間だったのか、
分からなくなってくる不思議な物語でした。

イメージがどんどん膨らんでくる物語で、さすが海に囲まれた国からの作品だなあと思いました。

昼寝中に見る夢のような、不思議なシーンがどんどんつながって現れる独特の世界観が面白いですね。監督さんはご存知ないと思いますが、この不思議さは谷山浩子さんの詞を思い出させます…

題材になった詩を読んでみたいと思ったのですが検索しても全然ヒットしませんね。どなたかご存知のかたいたらお願いします。空き缶を船にみたてるシーンが好きでした。
