Wow, work on this one began in 1987 and took over thirty years to complete! That alone marks this bit of stop-motion as a film worth considering. But is it worth viewing otherwise? I would have to say yes, but be under no illusions, this is not a film for everyone! There is no dialogue, so events onscreen are propelled by imagery and sound alone and its not honestly always easy to keep up with what is happening and why. On top of that, much of the imagery and events are of the grotesque variety, so viewers of a more sensitive bent should be warned. So, taking this into account, this tale of events in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world should best be approached by those with a taste for the bizarre and unpleasant. The imagery is extremely impressive, very often and this is one of those rare films which truly feels like an instant cult movie. Left-field animation fans should have a field day.
