Short stop-motion animation is a visual poem about sins and the subconscious. A man pursues his heart, while the devil makes music and three sinners are seduced below them.
This short stop-motion animation is a visual poem about sins and the subconscious. The motto is Oscar Wilde’s: 'Nothing makes one so vain as being told one is a sinner. Conscience makes egotists of us all.' In a bare room, an unshaven man hits a fly. This leads to a surrealist fight for his heart, while one room down the devil is making music and below them, in three rooms, people are struggling with sinful temptation.
