Upon being sent to live with relatives in the countryside; an emotionally distant adolescent girl becomes obsessed with an abandoned mansion and infatuated with a girl who lives there; a girl who may or may not be real.
The short animated film Moongirl, while beautifully CG created, rings hollow. I think nowadays beautifully rendered CGI graphics do not cut it anymore if it doesn't come with a compelling enough story to engage an audience.
Not that Moongirl's story doesn't work. but I feel that it's more for the kids, and it's an opportunity for the filmmakers to flex those artistic muscles in creating fairly complex visuals. I thought the little twist at the end was quite neat, but besides that, there's nothing much to move the narrative along.
Strictly as a show-reel, and nothing more.
