The « gravity » throughout the film seems spell-bound, shifting from heavy to almost non-existent. Most often this gives the characters, objects and animals an ability to take off, float, and ignite into a sparkle of incandescent intensity. Carried aloft by John Davis's music, the cosmic and spectacularly earthly combine to portray a heaven and earth continuum, as the surreality of episodes proceed with highly unexpected shifts. Embedded within this non-narrative narrative is a complete portrayal of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, spindle-prick and all. This is the most color-intense of all Jordan's animations, the music the most compelling, having been composed specifically to fit the film and to propel it resolutely forward.
