One of the greatest metaphors I've ever seen!
7 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

This short film (and the poem which is behind it) is one of the greatest metaphors I've ever seen!

The poem is beautiful! It describes exactly the feeling of a person that chases a dream and can't realize it… but it also tells how to fulfil it! I see the "Story of the Cat and the Moon" as one beautiful metaphor to the Human relationships, passion and love.

Technically it's done a good work too. In spite of being very simple, the animation, in black and white, gives a tone of allegory to the movie and to its message, but also of tenderness and nostalgia.

In addiction, the music also contributes to this poetic feeling.

"Nothing else matters! I will wait! She will come when she can, or when she wants to!"
