Darum geht's

Eine junge Frau ist eng mit den lebendigen Kräften der Natur verbunden. Als Tierpräparatorin ist sie in der Lage, tote Tiere in ihr natürliches Habitat zurückzuführen. Doch erst als sie eine unentwickelte Filmrolle in den Körpern findet, beginnt sie zu verstehen.

Darum sehenswert

Unser nächstes Highlight von den Oberhausener Kurzfilmtagen ist ein wunderschöner kroatischer Animationsfilm über Tierpräparation, die Melancholie von Erinnerungen und die Magie von Zelluloid. So erreicht diese surreale, wehmütige Geschichte in Stop-Motion-Bildern ihren süßen Höhepunkt.

  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film Imbued life

    This short is a narrative whether they like it or not. Therefore, the lack of focus makes it less enjoyable, despite their attempts to address the issue through the dialogue. If there's no focus, then why should we care? Film, dream, bear, boat, abstraction.

  • jmai's rating of the film Imbued life

    Brief essay: Dreams, presumably, come from our primitive, animal side, what our minds are doing without thinking. Wouldn't it be nice to preserve (as memorial) the dreams of animals along with their bodies, after death? But animals and dreams are meant to move (like stop brings to remarkably realistic life inert matter in this film). A photograph kills them. Better to settle into a dream reality.

  • tarahomasi's rating of the film Imbued life

    I woke up feeling as if a municipal machine had run on my body. Silence. I reached out to my screen. Voice and imagery help me to redefine my dimension after a long absence from reality. I was dreaming all night. Dreams I have no memory of but can feel them in my head, heart and body. I am certain there were happening. I’m alone in bed. Silently craving for more dreams. Like stuffed animals on a boat...

  • Ferhat Bakan's rating of the film Imbued life

    Farklı ve güzel Oberhausen Uluslararası Kısa Film Festivali’nden sıradaki dikkat çekici filmimiz göz alıcı Meksika yapımı bir animasyon. Hayvan doldurma sanatı, belleği koruma ve selüloidin büyüsünü birlikte zekice ören film zoru başaran zirvesiyle yumuşak bir gerçeküstücülük ve hüzünlü bir stop-motion animasyon.

  • Juan's rating of the film Imbued life

    Extraño corto que muestra el retroceso de la humanidad hasta un punto en que la tristeza se vuelve oscuramente depresiva. La protagonista es la personificación de una sensible alma moderna comprometida en sus vanos esfuerzos por revertir la destrucción de las otras especies.

  • Slappy McGee's rating of the film Imbued life

    It's like Wes Anderson, Tim Burton and Stephen King all got together and had a love child. What oozed forth was this beautifully disturbing and unique animated film about a lady with some pro'lems. Loved it.

  • Baylee Bell's rating of the film Imbued life

    This entire film can simply be described as unsettling. It is very abstract, however I cannot seem to see a true purpose of metaphor. Is it about death? Is it about memory? Is it about being one with nature? I cannot tell because I feel like so many things are happening at once and they never reach a full conclusion or point. The animation, however does fit the vibe of the film and its unsettling nature.

  • Rashad Buchanan's rating of the film Imbued life

    I have never been so eerily creeped out but entertained throughout any short film. The animation is amazing quality, and the background music adds to that scary and eeriness. Am going to have to show this animation to my friends and family!
