Gloomy is a young woman who has been driven mad by the loss of her love and seems warped by her heartache, we can only assume that she's dealing with the aftermath of a break-up because there is no indication that she lost her boyfriend through death. So we just get to see a sorrowful Gloomy dealing with her feelings about this break-up in her apartment. I really enjoyed it because it's quite relate able, it reminds me of a time when I went through a similar emotional period last year and the gothic "Tim Burtonesque" feel to the animation is wonderfully haunting, the music is very beautiful too.
There's quite a lovely little scene where she's looking under the bed to find anything that will arouse her feelings of sadness, she chucks the rose that he gave her from underneath there and then she throws out a bottle that I assumed was of vodka and then she finds what she was looking for and that is a picture of them together.
The pictures does just the trick and it stirs up the memories of more happier times and she sees their time together in a stark contrast to the bleak black and white flash back she had earlier whilst laying emotional-less in bed, the colours are far brighter in these scenes, juxtaposed to the gloomy reality that she is facing without him, it then hits her that she is left alone and you slowly watch as the bright memories fade and she starts to cry bringing her back to the dark bedroom.
I highly recommend that you give this little feature a watch -
I will be reviewing more short movies soon and I'm currently going to start working on my bigger movie review soon, I have found one that has a subject matter that has been quite prevalent recently.
