Movie Info

Short film to a song of love lost and rediscovered, a woman sees and undergoes surreal transformations. Her lover's face melts off, she dons a dress from the shadow of a bell and becomes a dandelion, ants crawl out of a hand and become Frenchmen riding bicycles. Not to mention the turtles with faces on their backs that collide to form a ballerina, or the bizarre baseball game. From the melting clocks and hourglass sand, to the figure rendered in strips, to the character covered in eyeballs, the style and themes of Dalí are clearly recognizable throughout.

An often-astonishing film of great beauty and bizarre visuals paired with a provocative love song.

This short is so good it propelled someone at the screening I attended to say, 'I would hate to be the film that follows this.'

March 26, 2004

A dazzling, six-minute animated short that itself is well worth the price of admission.

February 12, 2004 | Rating: 4/4

It is an amazing document, made more noteworthy by the near total absence of the sentiment, predictability and homogenization we associate with Disney cartoons.

January 29, 2004 | Rating: A

Naturally, it's surrealistic and brimming with visual freakishness, and the story is difficult to comprehend and follow.

September 28, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

This is a taste of classic Disney, a crooning, twisting song sung to the eyes, a vacation from rational thoughts.
