The End of Pinky revolves around three fallen angels seeking companionship and humanity in the shadows of Montreal’s red-light district. In the film’s mythic, magically realized world, coolly handsome thief Johnny is drawn to Mia’s fragile beauty. Both have a soft spot for Johnny’s sweet and hapless best friend, Pinky, who is also Johnny’s partner in crime. But when one of Pinky’s endearing quirks sets off a tragicomic chain of events, Johnny plots revenge. The film’s hand-drawn pencil and pastel animation, rendered in stereoscopic 3D, conjures a seedy world whose sepia-toned palette evokes cheap whiskey and nicotine stains.
