USA, 1998 (MIFF 1999, Animation)

Director: Mark Osborne

More tells the story of a tired old inventor who struggles through a joyless life in a drab city to invent a bit of meaning and worth. Melancholic, nostalgic and imaginative through model animation, a slick and mesmerising design and an engrossing soundtrack by British electronic pop group New Order.
