Loves Me, Loves Me Not is beyond great, it is art. The story is basic, because it is about a single man who picks the petals from a flower. On an odd petal, he receives something lucky and pleasant such as a kiss. When he lands on an even petal, he receives something nasty, each unlucky accident getting worse when more petals gradually get pulled off of the flower. The effects that the animation has to offer us is outstanding. The music and the animation is very lively and surreal and they work together really well. It starts off a bit slow, but it gradually builds up tension and gets faster like a heartbeat in shock would and it really does show how boring and painful life is without being loved. The only real nitpicks are that if you looks closely at the hands, there are only three fingers and a thumb instead of four fingers and a thumb, and yet some viewers may be a bit bored with the repetition of the words: "Loves me" and "Loves me not!" Kids obviously would prefer Chicken Run, Wallace And Gromit and Aardman's more recent film: Pirates. Other than that, it is a classic.
Overall Rating: 9.5/10!
