The Dream of a Ridiculous Man: My favorite so far, for its interesting plot and beautiful paintings!
The Naked Island: Liked how the director managed to tell the story without any dialogue! Action literally speaks louder than words in this film!
Leila (-): Liked the nice family drama! Just realised that the protagonist also acted in “A Separation”.
Changes in the Village (-): Interesting folk tale!
Singapore Gaga (-): Liked the interesting sounds and interviews!
Mother Joan of the Angels: Great acting and nice songs! Preferred the nun’s costumes in “Black Narcissus” though.
Amelia and the Angel: The little girl looked quite cute and I liked coming-of-age stories about little girls!
Illusion Travels by Streetcar: Liked the interesting play and the adventure through the streets!
Six Shooter: Nice plot and great dialogue!
Village People Radio Show: Liked how the image relates to the narration like the marching ants, the chained monkey and the play about the abandoned baby.
Siegfried (-): Nice epic story with lots of action!
Kremhild’s Revenge (-): Nice epic story with lots of action!
Letter from a Filmmaker to his Daughter: Liked the nice stories told by the narrator!
Healthy People for Pastime: Nice songs and I liked the group shots!
The Wayward Cloud (-): Nice songs!
Routine Holiday: The son’s expressionless face when Tuoga was telling the riddle was quite funny! I would love to have more riddles too!
Satiemania: Liked the nice music and the different styles used to draw people!
Felix in Exile: Nice animation!
Mind the Steps!: Nice animation!
No Man’s Land (-): Liked the interesting plot!
The Ascent (-): Have forgotten what the film was about after watching it many years ago.
Happy End: The concept was fun but it got tiresome after a while.
When the Lights Go Out: Thought it was quite a silly dare.
The Man Without a Past (-): Have forgotten what the film was about after watching it many years ago.
The Stone Cross: Don’t quite understand why the old man was so sad to leave his country.
There Will Come Soft Rains: Liked how the bird easily dodged the clumsy robot!
Pipilotti’s Mistakes: Liked the strange soundtrack which is a mix of nursery rhyme and drum roll.
