ABOUT THE FILM

A doll animation about one afternoon of immigrant mother and daughter from Western Europe. Antoinette and her mother cook in the kitchen on a typical afternoon and see a car approaching their apartment. Being upset about her mother's repeated nightmares, Antoinette remembers... This stylish stop-motion animation wisely combines the serious theme concerning immigrants' life with humors and eye-entertaining relish.

寂しさ・侘しさそして暖かさも感じられてとても良かった。テーマはとても難しいかったけど雰囲気が出ていて好きなタイプの映画です。

This is because I feel guilty for putting other people's films down and voting for my own.

作品中の人形では大切なストーリーの内容が表現出来ていないと思いました。微妙な表情等が表現出来れば作品としては更に良かったと思います。 人形を使った作品としてはテーマが難しかった気がします。

どこか‘寂しげ’な印象が心に引っかかります。 自分が祖母と同居してるからでしょうか? クレイアニメの温かさと、テーマのわびしさが心の中でミックスされ、その世界を季節で表すと秋。 これを人が演じていたら違ったものになったと思います。内容だけじゃなく、手法によっても感情が伝わるんだ、としみじみ思いました。

映画の印象は「かわいい」ですね。 でも外国のアニメや人形は日本のものと ずいぶん異なりますね。 日本人受けするものと、外国人受けする ものの違いを痛感しました。
