review by
Mike Haberfelner

Débora is a very gifted tattoo artist - whose life just seems to go nowhere, and who even has to endure her best friend Nadia trying to set her up with nerdy Samuel, much to her dismay. Then though, everything changes one night when all screens, be it TV screens, computer monitors or mobile phones, transmit a hypnotic signal bound to turn most of the population into mindless servants of a higher will - but not Débora and her friends. Thing is though, the whole world is suddenly invaded by giant cats, giant snakes, and a witch, who's also giant. Somehow, Débora finds out that everything has to do with the comicbook of one of her clients at the tattoo shop, and her expertise as a tattoo artist is needed to stop the invasion - but while dodging cat and snake attacks and advances from both Samuel and Nadia, who turns out to be bi-curious, Débora starts having serious doubts about being saviour of the world ...

 

Lava is a movie that really pushes the possibilities of what can be done in handdrawn animation to the limit - not actually on a technical level mind you, rather in terms of how much one can distort reality ... and the outcome is a very entertaining piece that blends science fiction with surrealism, fantasy with human drama and broad comedy, and even throws some body horror into it - and it's just completely crazy but in a way that manages to greatly entertain as the film is briskly enough paced to not one minute bore its audience!
