"This Magnificent Cake! is an astonishing, sensitive and original stop motion work that eschews time and subtly drifts between reality and illusion as it explores the crushed dreams and lives caused by the disastrous, brutal and inhuman effects of colonialism on both the innocent and guilty, and the good and the awful. With dashes of magic realism, we are placed in a sort of dreamscape where we’re never quite sure where we are, and never quite sure if what the characters are experiencing is real or not. It’s wonderfully disorientating."
- Chris Robinson, Animation World Network

Anthony is in his eighties, lives alone in his London apartment and categorically refuses the nurses his daughter is trying to arrange for him. Yet help is becoming a necessity as she can no longer make daily visits and he is losing his grip on reality as his memory is fading.
