I’m still processing this.
There’s some deep beneath the surface storytelling happen that my subconscious is still unravelling.
It’s beautiful and bloody.
The animation is great, a statement I’ve found true of most European productions. It mostly does well to contain its inspirations though there’s a very (distractingly) clear Miyazaki design.
It’s sold as an overthetop “Conker’s Bad Fur Day” as a movie about Teddy Bears fighting Unicorns. It’s actually a much deeper and darker satire about war, religion, nature and good vs evil.
It doesn’t entirely all work but enough does.
