Storyline

Rhinoceros Eyes is a fantastical coming-of-age story revolving around Chep, a young, reclusive prop-house employee who falls in love with a detail-obsessed movie production designer named Fran. Fran's need for authentic props sends Chep to great and questionable lengths as he tries to satisfy her requests, and ultimately... win her heart. Written by Anonymous

Now that its on DVD, see it and judge for yourself
23 August 2006 | by ennuibluSee all my reviews

It is totally possible that I am not as gifted as others at analyzing films. I am certainly no critic, simply a chick who loves the movies. Personally, I enjoyed this one. It was dark, strange and surprisingly sweet. I won't pretend to be Ebert or the other guy by commenting on various camera angles, lighting choices, plot development or editing. I can only say that I was completely engaged in the story, genuinely concerned for the main character, and disturbed (in a good way) by the strange animation.

I enjoyed it, you may not. Since its finally available on DVD from amazon.ca why not pick it up, watch it and judge for yourself? Don't go by what a bunch of people (including yours truly) with too much time on their hands have to say.
