The story is simple, illogical, mysterious, strange, and, of course, very, very sparse.
This exquisite animated feature, directed by Michael Dudok de Wit, has no dialogue, only the sounds of water, wind and birds, the occasional strains of Laurent Perez del Mar’s graceful score; and images of a young castaway living out the stages of his life on a desert island after giant storm waves hurl him onto a beach.
This is, quite simply, thoughtful and ultimately moving animation at its best.
