News & Interviews for Strings
Critic Reviews for Strings
Nightmarish adult fantasy set in a shadowy underworld where rain is frequent, court intrigue is rife & marionettes dangle from black wires as if undergoing daily crucifixion.
Some would call it simplistic and silly; I think it's fairly clever and actually a little bit sweet. But hey, I've always had a soft spot for a good puppet show.
Visually stunning and brimming with invention, although the plot is probably too confusing for its target audience
Audience Reviews for Strings
In a kingdom where everyone is a marionette, a prince disguises himself as a commoner and sets out to find his father's killer. The save-the-kingdom plot is at the same time derivative and confusing (with too many characters and factions), but the curious explorations of mythical marionette culture (they keep slaves for spare body parts, babies are carved out of wood and born when they're attached to strings that descend from the heavens, etc.) should be enough to keep you watching.
A singular experience. Well-devised, if a bit too languid in pacing.
That really frightened my boy...Really well done though
