Warning!: Not a cartoon for children or the squeamish!
10 October 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short, nominated for an Academy Award, is basically a Kabuki play done using puppet animation. This one makes Romeo and Juliet look like Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm! It is a very violent cartoon (I'm not talking cartoon violence here, either) and is not for everyone. Excellent animation and well worth watching. Most solidly recommended with the above warnings in mind.
