Great mood piece
25 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'm writing this because I felt the need to support this great mood piece of artistic creation after seeing someone putting it down in his review. Whoever thought the art works here are sub par and not by Moebius probably does not really know Moebius's style well. Having seen Moebius's different styles of rendering, his line works, his intricate pieces and his simpler less intricate ones, I am quite sure the line works for this series are drawn by him. The coloring are also quite sensitively done although it looks obvious that Moebius, whether by choice or by constraints did not spend tons of time to render everything with the kind of finesse he does on his more detailed artworks, but the tone of imageries, mood and color choices are surely his signature style .. the back to basic animation style is wonderfully done given how it does not resort to the kind of complex methods of rendering we see in Hollywood fair. Its a fresh take on animation of a more basic tone, this style somehow evokes a more introspective and surreal thoughtfulness which may not be possible with smoother more defined finishing .. I thought its a great choice of Moebius to go back to basics for this series .. the music and voice overs lend themselves wonderfully to add to the surreal mood typical of Moebius's style of story telling ..
