a beautiful and warm animation film about true love, 6 September 2005
Author: needcaffein from Zurich

I just saw this film tonight at FANTOCHE, the international festival for animated films which is held in Baden, Switzerland biannually. And I give a "TWO THUMBS UP". I was pretty much fed up with animations with futuristic features and tons of overloaded graphic technology, however finally I have found one full of pure natural beauty and heart-touching warmness! Although the drawing itself seems very simple and empty, you will see that the film is fuller by all means than any other animated movies. The background music also plays a big role in captivating your attention during each and every second of the film. The beautiful story line tells us what true love is. Made me think if I was ever a "fan" to someone. I cried for 3 minutes during the whole 7 minutes of the movie :)
