An impressive effort
23 June 2012 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

Wow, it's hard to believe than this animated short was done by only one person without budget, mostly because the result itself it's so incredibly well done that it could easily beat many films and animated shorts done by the big studios.

"Rosa" had a beautiful imagery and a great atmosphere...Even if the plot isn't something very original or complex, it is very well developed, telling a fascinating story which had all the potential to be a feature length film.

Even if "Rosa" isn't a life-changing experience, it certainly an impressive effort, worth of recognition.

8.5/10
