User Reviews

 
Nicely done
9 August 2011 | by sandtrail_neelixSee all my reviews

A short with an easy but still very much needed message created in a very nice stop-motion style.

The story should not be new to anyone over the age of twelve, but is brought with such an elegance it is worth watching anyways. The animators did a splendid job of creating a variety of characters within the limits they gave themselves. This makes for an enjoyable watch even for grown-ups.

The narrator's voice is pleasant and clear, the scenery simple and yet complete, and the music simple yet supporting.

I hope the creators will use their techniques to also make some more off-the-beaten-track stories.
