Fish Never Sleep is a very imaginative film about insomnia by French filmmaker Gaëlle Denis. Terse graphics similar to pen drawings and the controlled use of vivid colors increase the film’s attraction. And the weirdly shocking ending is eye-opening.
Abudacar and the Afrodisiac is an amusing short film. A man drinks a bottle of aphrodisiac to be able to satisfy the woman he loves. But soon enough, he suffers from side effects, and the naked woman walks away from him unsympathetically.
