Empty Space, 2016

Updated: Oct 3, 2021

Another stop motion done by Estonian Ulo Pikkov is again about a memory. But this time, it's about the women's recollection as a girl of the anxieties stemming from her father hiding from Soviet Union in 1950's.

What a great way to animate the story by stop motion and creating sets as if they were doll play sets. The haunting piano music plays while the girl plays and later we are met with the girl grown up in real person, sitting by the set giving us the real sense of the passage of the time.

Every detail about this movie so well thought out. It's one I can watch over and over again and I will find a new detail that will haunt me. I love this film.
