Robin

Sweden, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Animation)

Director: Magnus Carlsson

Short strange tales about a grown-up Swedish 'Bart Simpson' Robin, who speaks with a Swedish Accent. Just as things begin to fall apart, the narrative in each story moves on quite sedately as though nothing untoward had happened.
