An Emotionally Animated Short Film
12 September 2017 | by seungkimSee all my reviews

Allegorically, like Sherman in this film, my heart was torn from my chest. It floated about as a spirit in search of how the plot would develop. At the film's conclusion, the heart returned to my body along with a warm euphoric feeling. My review of the animated film is simple... So beautiful, that in under four minutes it was able to create such a heartwarming feeling to a worldwide audience. Gay, straight, young and old alike. This is indeed an incredible accomplishment.
