Kunio Katô Japonya, 2008

The Macho King's rating of the film The House of Small Cubes

A fantastic short, I'm impress with what they were able to cram in just 11 mins. Masterful execution too, especially the brilliant poetic visual metaphor as he descends down further and further into the water, room by room as he longingly reflects upon his past and his most precious memories . Also the art style is absolutely amazing. So warm, serene and nostalgic- i am enamored with it.
