How can one claim that hurtful memories are exclusive to adults when children have them as well? Perhaps adults easily believe children will naturally grow out of them, but the fact is, children struggle at overcoming such memories on their own. This is a film about a time magician who likes things like attics, old clocks, cats, bushes, witches and chocolate. The best thing about this film, which recalls the likes of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ by how it perfectly uses fantastic apparatuses, is that it brings out real emotions through a fairytale-like appeal. It’s also quite delightful to see how each sequence is constructed and how they begin with a subtitle often found in fairytales. (KIM Se-jin)
