“A regular wind-up toy world this is, I think. Once a day the wind-up bird has to come and wind the springs of this world. Alone in this fun house, only I grow old, a pale softball of death swelling inside me. Yet even as I sleep somewhere between Saturn and Uranus, wind-up birds everywhere are busy at work fulfilling their appointed rounds.”
Beyond the stunning effects, dazzling imagery, sheer scale of the story and fantastic character profiles, what impressed me the most in Melancholia is this amazing drawing of a giraffe.
