The world in the film is perhaps best described with terms like inertia and chaos. The animated characters lack the will to take any action; they are passive and indifferent, unable to create their own reality. The author portrays a world that has lost its original shapes and identity. The groan “oh God” becomes the main theme that combines it all, expressing a combination of grimace, sigh, and a quiet whisper of despair over our own impotence.
