Quite wonderful short that tackles both consumerism and ageism in the workplace in a slightly surreal darkly comic way. Performances are game and the short features spectacular set design and lush cinematography. Hopefully we hear more from young director Alice Vial.
Sweet and well-made little parable (with impressive bilingual title puns). A visual brand of whimsical satire whose cinematography/mise-en-scène sits somewhere between Wes Anderson and maybe John Waters. No deeper than anything you'd give a high-school class as essay fodder, but thoughtful and funny enough. And charming. Puts Alice Vial distinctly on my radar. 3.5
