This short film blew me out of my seat. It's use of color, extreme angles, surreal transformations and design are impressing. Me, as a Japan-freak, it's a treat to look at, because of all the Japan-ism's that are strewn across this flick. The story is a bit strange, but it suits the film. You can easily see that the director has a background in the visual arts and his use of Japanese imagery is heartwarming to every fan. But the most important thing is that you can really see this movie has been made by a group of very enthusiastic group of people and you can see that in every frame. If you can catch this flick somewhere, you will not be disappointed, it's all kinds of awesome!
