Modern scientific prophets remind us of the wonder of the human form and its apparently miraculous functional properties – yet to some sufferers of chronic physiological and mental issues, the body can be little more than a monstrously deficient and impedimentary vehicle.

Within a sullen, funny, and dark Powerpoint presentation style, our narrator cites a bitter litany of ailments that have afflicted him through his life, utilizing a disconnected and digitized voice littered with curses, blame, and curmudgeonly charming annoyance.

Swedish director Patrik Eklund is well accomplished, with numerous awards under his belt including an Academy Awards nomination for Best Short Film (live action) with Istället för abrakadabra (Instead of Abracadabra) in 2008.

Director: Patrik Eklund

Released 2016.

Disturbing, strangely heart warming and extremely macabre offering from Aardman Studios. Two spinsters of indeterminate age eke out a living on the coast of a troubled sea, a peculiar but loving bond between them.

And they’re going to have house guests, no matter what it takes…

Directed by Luis Cook
