The Gift Review
4 June 2014 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

I think this story is amazing, because I could not think and come up with such an idea. The unicorn is generally fantasy figure, in addition, a robot comes out. I think most people who know the word 'unicorn' can imagine what the unicorn looks like. However, the figure of the unicorn does not come out as what we can usually imagine. Also what I am interested in and think it is impressive is the unicorn is related to 'danger', though the unicorn is usually a divine symbol. I simply enjoy this film. It might be a good and spectacular film because it is short, but I hope that this will be a longer film at least for one hour.
