Plus fortes que l'alcool, plus vastes que nos lyres,
Fermentent les rousseurs amères de l'amour!

(Artur Rimbaud , "Le Bateau Ivre")



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

That was a very great film.

You're animation was a classic and deserves to be in the noir section within Newgrounds, the story was short yet very cute and has a moral about fearing death and what that fear can do to you in the end. Great job.

Oh wow..

So glad I watched this - that was such an emotional and intelligent perspective on that story. You should consider filmmaking or scriptwriting as a career, if you're lucky enough to be this gifted!

Fantastic job. That was truly artistic.

Amazing tale!

This is one great animation, in all aspects.
I love how you are able to make 2D characters and objects move as if they were in 3D. You're a tweening master. I can't say I liked the music that much, but it fit the film perfectly and that's what matters. I love how you use tones and colors to set a mood in your movies.
Storyline is great, too. I loved how you use metaphors to communicate the message of the story. How everything looks different to the little girl and the boy, how he sees the doctors as monsters, how they free him from his sick, ghostly shell, how everything is gray and gloomy and changes to a colorful spectrum once the boy is cured and he can see clearly.
And finally, I loved the short paragraph at the end, which I believe is quite true.
This is a great, meaningful story, and those don't come by too often.
