Wow, frontage again,Thanks Tom!
Alright, this movie will make some people cry. Let's face it. The world is not perfect. Tragedies happening everyday; however, not every tragedies crush our hearts. After we suffered pains, we go on. This story took place in Wuhan, 1938. Partially based on a real story.

----For those who believed there is too much advertising in this movie, I apologize and will keep them at a minimum in the future.

man movie was alittle sad when the mother died...


Rated 3 / 5 stars

oy, the animation was bad

the story might have been good. the music might have been good. the dialaugue might have been good. but the visuals made it completely UNWATCHABLE! The characters moved in disturbing, choppy movements, and the were poorly drawn and blocky. And the expresssions of the people were completely inapropriate and bland. The kid always looked like he was smiling, and no one really expressed as much emotion as I expected. This was pretty bad.

Interesting story. A little too mushy for me, but it definitely makes you think about life and life's obstacles and stuff like that. Anyways, good job.

It was quite touching indeed, but there were some problems with it.
Your animations techniques and drawings needs a lot of improvement
(espacially face expressions) and therefore just sorta negated the things you were trying to make us feel. The boy seemed to smile when he was crying next to his dead mother and that just broke the whole moment.
The concept is great, but you really need to improve your animation and drwaing to make it as strong as it should be.

it was ok.

the graphics weren't great. the mouths were horible. you should try to fix the faces so that they move smoother.
the music was a bit too repetitive in the lyrics, the song also didn't match the movie at times. also when the song stopped it made me less intentive to the movie, expecialy when you played the same song after the silence which made me a little annoyed.
the story was very good,
but don't switch from him talking about his past to him talking as if it was now.
when you changed from third person to first person like that it can confuss da duffasus and just make you look bad.
also in this kind of sad story don't give the "and we lived happily ever after" soon after a major trajedy.when the mom died you didn't but enought of a sad scene. you just kind of said she died and didn't give enought respect to the fact that the kid's hopes and second most important charater just died.

my thoughts,
