In a world where African savannas or Indian jungles can be populated with perfectly lifelike animals using computer programs, there are still holy lunatics who oppress in old school. That is, in a stop motion animation, the essence of which is to move the movable tiny puppets or tiny figures on a scale-by-tiny set, capturing each phase of the movement and essentially strapping these photos to obtain a film with a special mood. It doesn’t shine like Pixar or Disney did, but many times unforgettable pieces are born that way. Like Netflixen One House, Three Families (2022).

It is always suspicious if the original title – The House – is much shorter than the Hungarian one, and the suspicion is justified in this case: there are three different houses, only one family. We start with them too, because

the film is made up of three parts with different styles and stories.

In the first part, a poor family who saw better days gets an unexpected offer somewhere in – perhaps – Victorian England: a mysterious billionaire builds a huge house for them, completely free, but the ever-remodeled house literally sucks in parents while the two little children try to escape. In the middle, a rat or perhaps a mouse renovates a house bought as an investment, but as it awaits potential buyers for a housefire, woolly beetles surprise everything and then two mysterious visitors arrive. The strangest part is the third, which takes place in a cat-inhabited world in a run-down hotel that the owner is desperately trying to renovate, though why, because the whole landscape is covered in rising water and already has only two guests who haven’t paid a thousand years.

No, it’s not about children’s story (s), the three stories are all quite depressing,

and while no one is in trouble – at least before our eyes – it’s like watching a horror movie. A home-decorating – or remodeling – horror, because there’s always something lurking in the hallways that shouldn’t be there, and even if there’s nothing specifically there, there’s the threatening feeling, which isn’t like a serial killer hiding in the dark. It’s as if the whole world is getting ready to tear you in the head and you can only postpone the slowly but surely approaching disaster, but not prevent it. Depressing, of course, is not a good thing, it can’t be used as a buzzword, so the five directors in total, Emma De Swaef and Marc Roels from Belgium, Niki Lindroth Von Bahr from Sweden and Paloma Baeza from England his joint work, which is based on the script of Enda Walsh ( Hunger , 2008), who does not travel exclusively in animation, also carries a positive ending, if only as a compromise, but that is not the point.

But the sight and the atmosphere.

The former may be familiar to many, and it is no coincidence that the figures in One House, Three Families (2022) were created by the Manchester couple Mackinnon & Saunders, the same ones as The Fantastic Fox (2009) or The Dead Bride. (2005) made their wonderful puppets. The simple, yet incredibly detailed “characters” don’t come to life as they do in other animated films, they have a kind of dreamy presence, and the same is true of their movement – obviously just because of their movement (s). Nor does the film itself work like a film, the world of sound is completely different, much more like a work of art or some beautiful handicraft in the best sense possible. Something I would put some pictures on the wall or on the shelf without thinking…

Some extra information: the voices of the actors were borrowed from great actors like Helena Bonham Carter , Matthew Goode , Miranda Richardson or Mia Goth , but synchronized and viewed from Netflix in a somewhat unusual way, and in fact, the dubbing went very well this time around.
