  • saitosouta's rating of the film The Burden

    Acest film este un muzical apocaliptic care descrie oameni avînd anxietate și depresie a viață la noapte nedormit în Suedia. Chiar dacă animale în animație stop-motion sunt ciudat-scîrbos ca dracu, cîntece și danse ei în care speranță și deznădejde se ciocnesc sunt impresionant. // 今作はスウェーデンの眠れない夜を、人生への不安や鬱屈と共に過ごす人々を描いた黙示録的ミュージカルだ。ストップモーションで綴られる動物たちの造型が滅茶クソキモいながら、希望と絶望の混ざり合う奇妙な歌と踊りは感動的だ。

  • Vielleicht An Stillen Tagen's rating of the film The Burden

    Bittere Pillen, heiterer Trost, Befreiung - in eine Katastrophe mündend: der Kurzfilm kommt als apokalyptisches Katastrophen-Musical-Melodram daher. Dies sehr stilbewusst mit großartigen und liebenswerten Stop-Motion-Animationen und "Darsteller-Tieren", spannender Modellkulissen-Anmutung und hochwertigem, melancholischem Sounddesign. Ein Film über existenzielle Ängste, auferlegte Bürde und die Illusion der Träume?!?

    This is the best nonsense musical since The Rocky Horror Picture Show!
