Something impressive and well made
15 December 2012 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

Wow. Who'd have ever thought that an animated short film about talking flowers could be so serious and dramatic? It was certainly much better than I was expecting it to be, having not only a great animation quality, but also beautiful and surprisingly dark story concerning death and revenge, with a bittersweet message of optimism which fortunately isn't delivered in a corny or forced way.

It must be said that this isn't a short for kids (Little kids, at least) and certainly it could be way too grim for those viewers who still consider that all the animations are for children. (On the other side, I think that the "R" rating was an exaggeration since it wasn't really that violent or "disturbing")

I really enjoyed this short animation and personally I would recommend it to anyone...But don't expect it to be something "happy" or "lighthearted" just because the main characters are talking flowers.
