Simultaneously the most tragic and ghoulish animation you'll EVER see
10 November 2015 | by rzajacSee all my reviews

My eldest daughter and I saw this at an animation fest in Taipei, Taiwan. A composer and a producer who'd worked with van Driessen were in attendance at the screening.

Subject line sez all: Easily the most horrifyingly tragic and ghoulish short animation you'll ever see, in your whole life. My daughter and I were near tears: We would've outright cried if van Driessen had allowed some aesthetic distancing... but no: He insisted on pushing the awfulness of the scenario to such a pitch that you could only sit in frozen horror.

Kudos!

I asked the producer what van Driessen was like as a person. I was already pretty well-aware of his dark imagination. She said... He's such a nice guy! He remembers your birthday, and everything!
