Orbis Pictus presents itself as a quirky film about a young girl journeying in ignorance of the world around her. Yet there's an underlying sense of menace here, as through various encounters the main character's innocence is tested against a darker side of reality that, while only hinted at, is a disturbing presence all the same and sets up perfectly for the film's finale.
