It's really hard to properly tell this story: Nani, a patchwork girl living in an orb floating through the skies, is awoken by a maliciously thrown nut, and descends to earth to make it to where the nut has landed as it emanates some weird light. On her quest she's soon joined by fisherman Shojun, and they travel through a surreal lanscape full of floating heads and flying metal fish to the nuts landing spot, where some wonders await them ...

 

... at least that's my interpretation of the story, and I might be way off - but that hardly matters, as while Yamasong might be structured like a straight-forward narrative, it's really more of a feast for the eyes that surprises the audience with weird and dreamlike visuals that fit the story but defy explanation. And the looks of this movie, a combination of CGI and handmade puppets and props, are truly stunning, like nothing you've seen before - and since there's no dialogue or narration in this one, nothing is explained away, either, with only the eerie music by On Ensemble adding to the other-worldly atmosphere.

Totally worth a look!
