This enchanting animated parableis set in a kingdom within a painting, where society is divided into three castes: the impeccably colored, fully finished figures called Alldunns, the incomplete Halfies, and the barely outlined Sketchies. Across these class lines, a forbidden love blossoms between Ramo and Claire, who are from different backgrounds. Their adventures through the kingdom and beyond are depicted in flourishes of color and motion that are a treat for the eyes and imagination. Inventive and artful, The Painting has been well received by critics and viewers of all ages.
