Womb Raider

by The Bee Gees

A reluctant baby refuses to leave the comfort of their womb. But they soon make a discovery that changes EVERYTHING!


This soundtrack is the stuff dreams are made of, elevating a marvelously animated film about a baby in the womb from strange to transcendent, in my opinion. It felt a lot like the work of Angelo Badalementi on TWIN PEAKS with shimmering sonics and hazy synths that drew perfect parallels with the warm oozy surrounds the film was set in. Seriously well done Gabriel Lazaro, absolutely in my top 2 or 3 soundtracks in the whole comp this year!

As to the film itself, this was a beautifully textured sweet film with magnificent sound design, representative of the safety and comfort that the insides present generally for a growing baby, yet subverting viewer expectations with electric pulses and a generally tense tone.

Technically sensational all around, and very impressive to have animated this in a 48 Hours weekend. I think that a little more meat to the story would have elevated this further, such as the bubba trying harder to stay, or there being more of a felt threat of repercussions for not leaving as per the genre. But having said that I don't think the visuals in this film will ever leave me.

Story: 2.5/5
Technical: 4.5/5
Elements: 3/5
Overall: 3.5/5
