The experience of watching this film is quite unlike any other. I found the poetic and metaphorical nature of the story to be complimented amazingly by the animation, which will not be everyone's cup of tea but which I personally found stunning. The story itself is lyrical and meditative, and the power doesn't entirely hit you at first, but it's on reflection that you truly realize it. Overall, this is a strong film that deserves more recognition.
