    So many things have happened since February last blog, in terms of production team and animation. Let’s talk about the team first. There has been some major restructuring and rejuggling of roles. This is just a diplomatic and pseudo-English way to say.”People have dropped out!!! Aaarghhh”. Okay, let’s not panic nor scare the readers.

    Director Elena Saorin explains the themes of DOLLS…

    Margherita dollIt’s about life. Isn’t everything about life, considering that everything is pervaded by it? And how vague and pompously shallow is this statement? Ok I’ll put more effort in to this… if it’s about life, it must be about death. The two go together, hand in hand, in a macabre game of hide and seek (where we are always found). If it’s about death, it must be about growing up I guess. Whatever that means… approaching the final hour, finding enlightenment,  lightness of being (unbearable, someone would say)… suffering… yeah, growing up is about suffering mostly. That’s what you remember the most anyway. Then, love must come in to the equation… an overused and overloaded word, almost meaningless by now… but not for my Doll.

    In true romantic tradition (in terms of romantic literature), the DOLLS fantastical story came out of the broken subconscious of a lonely soul in search for something. What’s that something? It’s not for me to decide. It’s not just my story now. It escaped my grip long ago.

    It feels forced now to work out “DOLLS themes”. I wasn’t thinking about them when I spewed it out a few years back. It’s just a story – a story about a character who meets other characters in a place that doesn’t really exists. Aren’t most films, books, tales just like that? What would make it different and special is… you. You and your tale. Your “themes” reflected on Doll’s story. Make it yours. It is yours… enjoy it as you would enjoy life, death, growing up, crying and loving.
