A perfect start to a grey and blowy Monday morning, this short stop motion animation is the perfect antidote in a little compact bundle of 2 minutes 14 seconds. Charming and simply-made, this story is centred on a tabletop place-setting in shades of white and cream. However, the colour palette doesn’t remain thus. All the fun is made out of brightly-coloured plasticine and much fun there is to be had. It all starts when the first colourful character bursts out of the noodles and into the story. And from there they don’t stop coming; twisting and turning, forward spins and extravagant dives. Animals (existing and non-existing), sea creatures and reptiles in an array of colours pop leaping out from in amongst the noodles before disappearing back into the deep bowl filled with slippery strands. A simple idea (as they always are) executed superbly well to a very nice finish. This isn’t polished and airbrushed, this is art in a puritan state. It’s an animation suitable for all; big and small, high-tech or simple and it won’t fail to please. Magic and mesmerising, sit back and enjoy.
