Under the guise of a pretty fairy tale, this animated short makes a strong political statement. Animated paper cut-outs enact a drama in which a dictator imposes his delusions on his unfortunate subjects. The humour is black and, despite the absence of dialogue, the message is crystal clear.

    “An excellent film. However, I do wish that the NFB would use Canadian spelling in its descriptions.” — Lemon, 22 May 2013
