ABOUT THE FILM

This stop-motion animation, made almost entirely with real food, tells the tale of a stalwart cupcake yearning to find something beyond his world of sugar cube skyscrapers and frosting-covered friends. When his makeshift boat crashes on foreign shores, he makes a shocking discovery that changes him forever.

都会の虚飾と田舎の純朴を対比させたようなところがあり、文明批評が利いています。カップケーキがひょうたんと抱き合って一夜を過ごす際、カップケーキがひょうたんの腰のくびれを撫でる場面は色気があって笑わせます。翌日ひょうたんから人参の種をもらって別れるところはペーソスに溢れ、その後の展開はノアの箱船を思わせますが、音楽の効果とあいまって、大人の鑑賞に堪える作品となっています。

All characters are so cute, all the more they don't speak at all.

すごいの一言ですね。
ストーリーもそうですが、一こま一こまが非常に丁寧に作られていて、製作者の方に脱帽です。
