György Kovásznai’s first feature film, and Hungary’s third ever full-length animated feature, is a complete trip in every way. This 4K remaster showcases character design that is visually stunning, and movement that is informed by Kovásznai’s career of experimentation with the medium and countless hours of research into what we know now as Cartoon Modern practices and processes.
This is a film for fans of abstracted figurative artwork similar to that of Gary Panter, Robert Crumb, Fleischer Studios, and Yellow Submarine. It has incredible vitality, filled with themes of romance, beautiful dance sequences, and emotionally enriched musical numbers.
BUBBLE BATH is a tale about having anxieties around getting married and being locked down to a future. A medical student and interior designer work out their insecurities as they dance, drink bubbly, smoke cigarettes, get in arguments, and hide under tables, all in an attempt to make sense of the world.
This is not an emotionally lucid film, but the crazed energy is irresistible!
