This is something for any avid anime critic. It from a technical view point is beautiful. Still without a story it can not fully be considered a short film. It is more of an extension of the artworks. Rather than showing the audience pieces of artwork in a slide show manner there is sound and movement added. In one shot they'll have a girl opening a door on a house inside of a painting. On another the painted lake comes alive with the ripples and reflections of real water. Even the sounds from a near by restaurant adds to the atmosphere. I enjoyed watching this from a learning perspective. With that in mind I would suggest it.
