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.
worth a look!
