It’s gorgeous; its gently flickering lights, exotic creatures and muted pinks, blues and greens move with the playful soundtrack. As a glorified advert it’s a wonderful little film: experimental, fascinating, a little strange and brave. It asks you to really listen to these creatures talk, to go with an idea which might seem strange but is common to all its interviewees.
It’s a simultaneous look into the power and objectification of female bodies; the woman as animal, but also as an animal of her choosing. Intentionally or not, it really talks about the way our imagination doesn’t match up with the limitation of our bodies.
