With arresting insight, vulnerability and a delightful sense of humour, this explosively creative film documents the relationship between a young man and a young woman as it teeters on the divide between platonic and romantic. An Oversimplification of Her Beauty creates an exquisite tapestry of live action and various styles of animation to delve deeply into the male psyche, as the young man sweats and stretches toward maturity. The result is an exciting and breathtakingly original film.
