Review

Shinichi Sato’s experimental micro-short takes viewers on a captivating journey that defies conventions. Focusing on the dynamic relationship between an over-sleeper and their alarm clock, this animated film immerses audiences in a world where time and breath intertwine.

What sets this film apart is its masterful animation, which brings to life the delicate dance of the unseen character. The synchronization between the alarm clock’s ticking and the rhythmic inhaling and exhaling creates a mesmerizing effect, evoking a sense of harmony and unity. Sato’s attention to detail shines through in every frame, crafting a captivating visual experience.

The music, carefully chosen to complement the tone and atmosphere, aids in establishing the film’s unique ambiance. Though fleeting and very short, the absence of live-action or characters does not hinder the film’s ability to captivate. In fact, the absence of dialogue allows the beauty of the animation and the symbiotic relationship between the over-sleeper and the alarm clock to take centre stage.

Sato’s skills as a filmmaker are on full display in this micro-short, showcasing their talent for conveying storytelling in an unconventional and concise manner. As the film draws to a close, one is left with a sense of longing for an expanded narrative, as the taste of its enchantment lingers.

In conclusion, this film is a true gem in the animated film landscape. With its mesmerizing animation, melodic harmony of time, and skilled craftsmanship, it showcases Shinichi Sato’s ability to create profound and thought-provoking experiences. While a longer narrative would be welcome to explore the depths of this intriguing concept, Sato’s creation stands as a testament to the power of brevity and the extraordinary possibilities that can be realized within the confines of a short film.
