Saturday Steam: Invention of Love

Saturday, October 1, 2011

This almost-silent art film is filled with stunning imagery, although I should warn you it has a sad ending:



I was especially impressed with the cityscapes and the mechanical butterfly. You?


I've seen this a few times over the past year, but thanks to Sara P. for reminding me of it!

  2. Thanks for putting it up! The butterfly is pretty fantastic, but I would do some pretty bad things for the upside-down music box.

    I can't help but you'd get a giant kick out of "The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello." It's dark and steamy and darkly steampunky, and just all around awesome. I found it on the "2006 Best Animated Shorts Nominations" dvd that the Oscars put out to assure the world the category actually has films in it.

  4. That was incredibly beautiful. I also loved the cityscapes, but the horse was my favourite. The story was touching and, as you said, the ending sad. Did I mention incredibly beautiful yet?

  10. Ack. I was thinking "don't watch it, it will make you depressed, don't watch it." I watched it.

    I'm going to go cry myself to sleep now.
