In the bowels of a faceless and overpopulated metropolis, a dexterous pickpocket is driven by the incessant voices in his head.
I really enjoy the style of lines in this animation. Hard and straight, just as the constant as the story line. A man fights against with his own guilt, maybe evil deep inside, or anything u call it. And finally, 'Love' beats evil. Quite old-fashion, no twists and lack of drama, even a little boring. I know all of these, but I still say, it is my favorite.
The first fascination source are the straight lines. the second - the story. it could be a film about schizophrenia . or about a young thief. or about ordinary every day life and the manner to see the other. in fact, it is a pure gem. for everybody. because the film is seductive. and fascinating. and special. for the theme and for the details . for the fight again demons and for the cure. for a sort of magic realism who gives to it a different frame. or aura. because , in fact, it could be about you. and, maybe, that remains, after its end, the most significant fact. it is not an easy animation. because, long time after its end, fragments from it are present in your memory in fresh way. like a kind of memories about real events. sure, probably it is only my case.
