The Burden (2017)

Min börda
2017 | Sweden | Niki Lindroth Von Bahr | ★★★

Swedish film-maker Niki Lindroth Von Bahr's The Burden is a gorgeously crafted though only mildly diverting animated short film, comprised of a series of strikingly choreographed but decidedly downbeat musical song and dance numbers.


"An animated musical with apocalyptic undertones. The story takes place in 4 different episodes in 4 different settings. All of the settings are located in a modern, generic market place next to a large freeway. The characters, portrayed as animals, perform musical numbers with singing and dancing." Festival de Cannes
