The single episodes, apparently unrelated to each other, tell the life or adventure of an inhabitant of the fantastic planet "Phantasmagoria", it is only encountered by crossing the "Kingdom of dreams".

Each inhabitant has a function, a "job", described by the narrators Morio Agata and Kaori Kano, accompanied by the music of Utollo Teshikai, in a simple, banal, common, but in reality extraordinary way, as if to evoke a fairy tale.


a piece of phantasmagoria


The film has no plot, is intentionally meaningless, its purpose is to illustrate every single region of the planet, in a clear way, how it is presented to a child.

Film that I recommend if you want to return to dream, to find your own little planet, named "Phantasmagoria".
