Don't Underestimate
21 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Considering this movie was done with a tiny budget and is only ten minutes in length one cannot expect extensive depth of character and storyline as some reviewers here seem to complain about.

There is very little that can be developed in little over ten minutes -- plot and character-wise so the developers chose to take a more abstract route. If you do not attempt to get hard facts out of it and try to see it as a more open-minded experiment that may result in multiple interpretations then I think you will find it enjoyable.

also the computer animation is just amazing for a small budget film that was developed entirely with a product made and given away freely.
