It's Such a Beautiful Day Cert. 15 Picture house at FACT

For almost 20 years, Don Hertzfeldt has been one of the world's most inventive, talented and sardonic directors of hand-drawn animated film. IT'S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL DAY is his scintillating feature debut.

The film follows an anxiety-stricken stick man named Bill, for whom the mundane tasks of everyday life prove Earth-shatteringly momentous. We join him on a bittersweet existential odyssey which takes in dead birds, big onions, lunchbox messages, trains, manatees, leaf-blowers and the death and rebirth of the universe.

This pocket-sized epic incorporates the blistering deadpan of Buster Keaton, the narrative back-flipping of Charlie Kaufman, the blissful Zen contemplation of Yasujiro Ozu and the grand philosophical investigations of Terrence Malick. It’s like nothing you will have seen before.
