To bathe in the projected light of this filmic poem is to discover cinematic nirvana. From the imaginative and lovelorn mind of director Terence Nance comes a wholly original, insightful and personal journey through heart and mind as he attempts to win over the one who got away. Dissecting his very relatable romantic frustrations in a series of essays, Nance employs an eclectic visual language, combining stunningly beautiful hand-drawn animation, live-action, amateur video, claymation, stream-of-consciousness narration, documentary footage and personal interviews into a symphony of emotions. Straddling the line between fantasy and reality, Nance has created a dazzling film that will restore your faith in the idea that both the art and storytelling capabilities of the cinematic medium have yet to be fully explored.
