Stanley never goes outside. He likes to play with his clockwork toys and every night his mother kisses him goodnight. Stanley is twenty. The trouble is that Stanley thinks this is all quite normal, until an encounter with a mysterious girl turns his world upside down...
I saw this film a few months ago and it has stuck in my memory ever since. It is completely captivating and visually beautiful. It also manages to portray engaging and sympathetic characters through a short but compelling, at times funny and sad, narrative. Brilliant!
Magical and thought provoking
What a great film. I loved the techniques, the characters and the storyline. And doesn't everyone have thoughts and parents like those in this magical film? It deserves to be made into a full feature and it has the depth and characters to do that. Really brilliant!
Get yourself in a pickle
Saw this at a Film Festival. Utterly delightful, beautiful and magical with a glorious sense of humour. One of those rare short films that cheers you up, simply thinking about it.
