unique, sweet, funny, sad; a great animated short
It's a beautiful, oddly futuristic animated love story told in ten minutes. These ten minutes contain much of what one needs in order to build a great and effective short film, and plenty more. Stylistically, the film is fearlessly bizarre and oft-experimental. It combines the (oft-blackly) humorous w/the heartbreaking w/the uplifting. It's tender and tough and totally sincere, and definitely got better and better as it went along for me. At first, it kind of felt mildly underwhelming I guess, and I cannot really explain why, but by the time I was like only two minutes in, all of that washed away completely and I practically fell in love along w/the two protagonists.
