the turtle
5 November 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is the most beautiful character of this animation about the return to origin, escaping from yourself, discovering the real peace out of civilization. "Caldera" is a special film. you feel that scene by scene and the carapace as heap of stones is one of explanations. not the only, off course. because Evan Viera purpose seems be to give a splendid technical animation. the story - only a sketch for the viewer who could create a coherent meaning for himself.

so, a magnificent turtle, a young woman, a bottle with pills and the ocean. and it is enough for a film who seduce and convince to go to looking a sense/story for it.
