This film is powerful because it's awkward. You don’t take a person like Crulic (with all his regular photos and regular clothes and regular life story) and show him in such a positive and humane manner. You have at least to make him read Dostojevskij and have some particularly interesting thoughts or make him an illegitimate son of a king or a great poet. otherwise how could Crulic manage to starve to death?
maybe I paid attention and everything, but I have the feeling I understood the film, and disregard other comments as malicious if they say the storytelling is messy. well, the real one is even messier hence the way Anca Damian chose to say it. my real troubled question is why spoken in Romanian and English and not Polish?! big up for animation, story&subject, voice&direction, documentation, feeling&creativity!
Kudos for the techniques behind the animation and for the social message. The minus goes to the plot progression as it could have been done better.
