A stop-motion animation dream!

Starts off very strong, whimsical and creepy. The film throughout feels a bit like a horror film, but never truly commits to a genre, at least not in the traditional way, this film does not have to. The film is made of a triptych of stories and it is the first one that feels the most ominous and powerful, the second story ratchets up the creep factor and the third story feels a bit uneven but utilizes hope in a specific way that grabs the attention of the viewer (in case they lost it). The stop-motion animation is wondrous and definitely takes center stage in all three of the narratives although the story structure is not far behind. Intriguing, original and definitely worth your 100 minutes!
