From Flores

Canada, 1990 (MIFF 1991, Animation)

Director: Stephen McCallum

Based on a Canadian short story, narrating the tale of a fateful boat trip, this very expressive film eschews the staple themes of animated films (the vendettas of anthropomorphic animals, political allegory, the ballet of abstraction) in favour of the stuff of melodrama. A gripping narrative with heightened emotions. (FF)
