One Potato Review
Not beautiful or anything, but wise and laconic in a Swedish sort of way. The two-dimensional pictures and present-tense narrative mask a zanier sensibility: Boris boasts of his astigmatism as though it’s some form of exotic pedigree, and takes a job in the plug department of a radio factory “because if you can’t plug the radio in no music will come out.” Whatever lesson there is to be learned at the end of his self-discovery never interferes with the entertainment, indeed the overall effect is of listening to a story told by someone who doesn’t even know he’s funny.
