“Paragraph” plays the horrors of bureaucracy for laughs

There’s nothing quite as frustrating as getting trapped in the red tape of a bureaucracy. “Paragraph” by golego animation & nichtgedreht illustrates that beautifully.

“Paragraph” is a great example of non-verbal communication, the story is told solely through creative visuals and a great soundtrack. One of my favorite moments is when the main character comes to a hallway of colored doors all of which are labeled with a different color.

The cinematography adds to the feeling of an endless quest through a bureaucracy because it it all one continuos shot on a giant set. The final pull back to reveal all the people endlessly lost, is a fitting ending for a film about a confusing hopeless quest. It also recalls the amazing end title sequence of “The LEGO Movie.”
