Storyline

Victor is a washed-up film director, gone to seed since the death of his wife, struggling to support his son Ingmar (named after Ingmar Bergman) with no income and no work. His only friends are a family who manage a run-down cinema with a stockroom full of celluloid classics that nobody pays to see. Victor revels in dreams of past glories, when 'the Americans' sought him for his expertise in special effects, although his recent CV comprises a hamfisted documentary and a silent film about Ancient Greeks, so bad that the only thing people (mis)remember is the Romans and that nobody wants to watch silent films anymore. Ingmar, uninterested in cinematic greats, is happy to watch monster films while his father drinks. Victor keeps busy making films that he never completes, using Ingmar as his cast and crew, while trying to secure funding for his magnum opus, dodging a social worker with concerns about the child, and chasing an inheritance controlled by his estranged sister and debts owed ...

Fantasy fantastic
2 August 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

This aims to please those with a heart for fantasy. A heart for older movies and claymation. Nods to a lot of movies that used trick technology and a lot of crazy stories are being told. It makes sense with the main character being a film director and having had to endure a big loss while still having his son whom he tries to entertain and shield from certain ugly truths.

It's also a movie about denying reality - living in your fantasy or making one up that is, so you don't have to deal with certain things that are unavoidable otherwise. The acting is really good, the effects are good and the story itself is more than engaging.
