A nightmarish little bit of steampunk animation with hints of Metropolis and Micmacs, "Monsieur COK" may be a bit obvious in its politics (the rebellious worker crushed by the machines literally uses a hammer and sickle as weapons), but the visual style is striking and horribly beautiful.

And the moral of the story, I think, is never work for the Kinder Surprise company. Their CEO is a little off.
