Quite simple and beautiful. Maybe just a little too simple and a little too beautiful. Although the animation was perfect for the story, it didn't seem to earn all the emotion it so easily unplugged. If that makes any sense.
I found it kinda of sad that nobody has written anything about such an amazing short film. The first time I saw this movie, I was shocked and moved on how much a simple animated film had an effect on me. When the lights returned I quickly scanned the room, I was not alone.
