An excellent animation!
19 October 2005 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

"From Darkness" is a beautiful 8-minute retelling of an Inuit legend about a fisherman who casts his line in haunted waters.

The style of the animation is similar to the style of 2-D Inuit drawings (the artists here are very good), and the slow pace and starkly white surroundings perfectly capture the rhythm of life in such a place (I've tried fishing on the ice in Nunavut, and it is every bit as lonely as the film makes it out to be). The music is also worth singling out - it is very, very good, and perfectly captures the atmosphere of the film.

If you're a lover of thought-provoking animation, you will probably love this movie. It can be found in its entirety here: (Yes, this is a legal site)

P.S. There is some slight nudity in the film, but I think that such a beautiful film can be watched by anyone really.
