Brilliantly translated from the painting.
6 October 2004 | by (CA, USA) – See all my reviews

The undertones of this short piece are astounding. After seeing the bit, and studying the painting thereafter I see how the moral is truly conveyed in the piece. The characters are actually derived from the characters in the painting, and it's a joy to see how much information is derived from the facial expressions of the puppets. The scenery and motions of each astound as well. The opening scene sets the tone well, and the ending was delightfully surprising. Amazing how much message can be conveyed through stop motion animation, and this is one of the pieces that proves that. Worth at least a glance.
