ACCIDENTAL LUXURIANCE OF THE TRANSLUCENT WATERY REBUS
O.V. in Croatian subtitled in English
The inconceivable worlds of Ursula K. Leguin and Philip K. Dick, the narrative labyrinths of Robe-Grillet and the cinema from authors such as Tarkovsky and Cronenberg collide in this existential detective film, a dystopia that travels in time and in the subconscious. The story of Martin, a system fugitive who escapes a revolutionary commune, gives Dalibor Baric wings to create an animation based on collages and rotoscopes where each shot is breathtaking. The sort of visual pleasure to get lost in, if possible on the big screen.
