The Quays’ familiar puppet animation is here enhanced by the use of animated iron filings, which suggest the rapid formation of frost over every surface, the swaying of the individual particles suggesting a hefty buffeting by a keen, piercing wind.

MUBI's take

In this, the fourth and final in the Quay Brothers’s Stille Nacht series, we return to the creepy imagery of rabbits and dolls that bolstered the second entry, alongside the music of His Name Is Alive. Expressionistic disorientation and jagged edges abound in this Lewis Carroll-esque animated short.
