The animation’s formal and stylistical coherence echoes the symbiotic relationship between Marius and his hard liquor. Every gaze into the bottom of the bottle brings the protagonist closer to the very bottom of the social ladder. Marius reaches the end of that journey the moment he abandons a life lived to the rhythm of everyday reality in favor of a lone existence in an alcoholic void.
