There are a number of good things going on in this animated short film. The sparse set, which makes a lot out of a little. The lighting, which is equally sparse yet evocative. And the stop-motion animation itself, which sees a collection of flowers moving in rhythm to classical music. After this section of the film… I’m not really sure what exactly happens. One flower with a face (or maybe a mask?) is brought some water (?) by another flower dressed as a waitress (?). The flower spills or knocks this over, wants the “waitress” to pick it up, accidentally pulls off her apron (?), and then gets slapped and spins around. So… yeah. The opening portion is visually appealing and whimsical, but what happens after that is up in the air.
