Twitter Capsule: Winsome but not frivolous fable about freedoms we envy, imagine, and maybe enjoy. Stiff at times but glides at others.

VOR:   Lovely to encounter some lightness of spirit, troubled though it is, amid grim festival auteurism. Even more refreshing in its technically audacious embrace of gently surrealist impulses.
