It is a coloured, poetical and funny musical fable that can be seen like a mix of The Little Prince, Robinson Crusoe and Monty Python.
The Island is a very actual project. An animated musical that offers the audience through the setting laughter, poetry and adventure the solitude of the individual and the search of a meaning on a planet that collapse. A strong asset is in the reinterpretation of the story of Robinson Crusoe, updated to our times when we try to repair the colonist’s behavior but still, we are limited by the rules and hypocrisy.
Everything happens while we live through the consequences of the ecological unbalance that we created on the planet, so in a way we contemplate the end of the world.
The narrative pulse is linked to the animation and is meant to flow as a poem. Images and sound (music) are placed in the foreground, emphasizing the fact that the film creates patterns in space, images-representations and vivid paintings.
