Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by e-mail. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic Ramayana. Set to the 1920’s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as "The Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told."
The delivery is very unconventional and might seem weird at first, but it comes together in the end. I think the music was very well done, and the blues all by the same artist really emphasizes how this is a story that we're all familiar with, whether or not we're aware of it. The art was fantastic and all of the different styles were mesmerizing.
