In the authoritarian world dominated by male shoes, female high heels are forbidden to work or even exist. Newborn baby girl shoes are transformed into male shoes so that they can work in the cigarette factory. In a birth prison, a high heel mother murders the male shoe chief to protect her daughter from being transformed into a male shoe. To feed her daughter, she uses the chief's leather coat as a gender disguise and works in the cigarette factory. When her identity is exposed, she is ruthlessly ridiculed and tortured by her colleagues and superiors. Finally, she discovers her inner energy and begins an avenge in the name of her daughter.

  • quite special stop motion animation by 7

    Incredible creative, quite weird imagination, shockingly brutal and also contain sociology prophesy, with the style of anomalism! Something like strange mixture of Jan Svankmajer and George Orwell.

  • Astonishing stop-motion masterpiece by 10

    Watcing this film is like seeing a master being surpassed. Heavily reminiscent of the works of Czech surrealist filmmaker Jan Svankmajer, S He uses impeccably realised stop-motion techniques to tell disturbing story of oppression, resistance, revolution, revenge, and cyclical self-destruction, all made using the refuse of civilisation, as the objects given uncanny life through the truly jaw-dropping animation are comprised of common everyday items which we throw away every day. The talent and artistry involved in producing this film is world-class. As far as the art of stop-motion animation, this is perfection.

    If you're a jaded film buff looking for something you haven't seen before, seek this out immediately. If you have the slightest interest in stop-motion animation, this is esesntial viewing. Run, don't walk, to see this. I might sound hyperbolic because I've just finished watching it and am still reeling from the experience. It's absolutely incredible. Like nothing else. I'm shocked there aren't more reviews here.
