Amazing animation, horrible story!!
First of all, anyone who watches this can easily see why parents were advised to remove their children from the theater before it was presented.
The animation is — STUNNINGLY Beautiful! I can see why another reviewer mistook the story as an tiny war, but I felt it was depicting Athens/Sparta.
The story is pointlessly grim and violent. As an aside, I doubt any man would find it comfortable to fight without at least underwear, if not shorts on. The dangling genitalia was unnecessary to the story, I cannot see one reason it was done.
What is it supposed to be? Is it supposed to speak to the violence and loss of war? Is that something our world doesn’t understand, hence a need to waste the (considerable) effort of the artist on? No.
The entire time I was watching it I was frustrated by the wasted talent. He should find a new writer give him a story worthy of his work.
The horror of war is in store
Richard Williams’ Prologue is a decidedly emptier short film in terms of plot, as its eight minutes showcase very elaborate and detailed sketches of warfare that are uncommonly violent and brutal, especially by the standards of animation. The battle takes place between Spartan and Athenian warriors, who find new and riveting ways to pierce the exposed fleshes of their enemies all while trying to win the war despite losing everything.
You can tell how little the short is about given my dramatic plot reiteration. As a whole, while there isn’t much going on with Prologue, it’s a strangely immersive short film. Its largely blank canvas, only decorated with simple pencil strokes of gray, black, and red that realize the ugliness of battle, strangely helps one get sucked into the world before being spit back out when the credits roll. On top of that, the violence here is immaculately conceptualized and the overall effect is strangely satisfying, almost servicing one’s questionably human, carnal desires to see violence by way of such an innocent medium. If nothing else, use it as a cautionary tale for the horror of war.
