An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty, film review: Whimsy soon becomes wearing

(12A) Terence Nance, 84 mins Starring: Terence Nance, Namik Minter, JC Cain, Reg E Cathey

Not so much a feature film as a series of cinematic doodles and self-reflexive ruminations on the subject of obsessive love, An Oversimplification includes animation and live action.

There are moments of great charm along the way even if the whimsy soon becomes wearing.

The director Terence Nance uses voice-over to try to impose at least the illusion of coherence on a project clearly made up as he went along.
