Positives: The French & adjoining northern regions produce great animations especially stop-motion. Sweden even got into the game with a bonus short. The craftsman(woman)ship for the characters, props, settings were, as far as I could tell, all magnificently crafted from wool (or it's compressed analogue - felt). So kudos for all that. Negative: For the casual viewer the stories (supposedly satirical, metaphorical, symbolic) seemed too obscure with a fragmented flow. Conclusion: Entertaining, but not something I'm going to remember.
