Reviewed by: Angus Wolfe Murray
On a small planet lived a girl and a cow.
The narrative voice is telling a fairy story, except there are no fairies here, only a girl with a cold, a cow that jumps over the moon and a bad tempered hornet.
The cow and the hornet are stuck on the moon, which is the size of a large cheese, and the little girl watches, helplessly, from her sneezy room.
The animation is inspired, unique, inventive, based on pop-up book illustrations, except no one pops, they scramble, with their heads dangling, as if from a pin.
Even this does not do justice to the exquisite childish wonder of a radical nursery rhyme (that doesn't rhyme).Reviewed on: 12 Feb 2004
