There's something sinister going on in the library of the Alchemic Council that night, as a few not quite benevolent magicians burn certain books at the request of the Time Shadow (Neil Green), a malevolent being captured in the mirrors of the Council but not entirely without powers in the real world ... all but the power to exit his mirror world. The key for this would be to burn the book of Unseen Memories, but good magician Acheron (Daniel Wyse) has grown wise to this and unbeknowest to anyone steels exactly that book - and while he's ultimately overcome and killed by the Shadow Beast, his Cat Familiar Clovis (Morgan Muscat) manages to escape and deliver the book to Acheron's favourite student Lydia (Sandra DaCosta) - even if it costs his own life ... much to the dismay of Lydia's Cat Familiar Callista (Caley Le Grand), who has been Clovis's lover for years.

All Callista wants to do is to return the book to the Council and let them serve justice, but she's intercepted by a magician (Paul Nicholls) she thought on her side, who tries to trick her into giving up the book for his own sake - not realizing that he's only a pawn in the Time Shadow's plot himself though ...

And suddenly Lydia finds herself fighting a battle she knows little about, traveling through worlds she has never even dreamed would exist, and facing odds way above her experience or capabilities - but she knows if she loses, it would mean the end of the world as she knows it ...

 

Cold Dark Mirror is a feature length CGI animation movie created, written, designed, animated, everything, by one-man-animation band David T. Krupicz - and it's a remarkable movie. That said, it's not perfect, the animation is not always as smooth or convincing as can be, the character designs are a bit on the dull side ... but while it's not perfect it's truly remarkable, and not only because one guy pretty much did it all on his own, but because apart from a few technical shortcomings, the movie is just breathtaking. It creates new (yet totally "graspable") worlds with the greatest of ease, is full of surreal details, is heavy on atmosphere, cinematic in approach, and dares to tell a highly original story - to put it another way, this is a really good piece of fantasy cinema.

Definitely recommended!
