A true story about life...
Full English version!

there are video stream from original russian version and overdubbing on english language so that's why lips are off sync!

p.s.: All characters in this cartoon is not real. "People, you suppossed to judge this on how it was meant to be, if it was meant to be the meaning of life, then watch it as that, so dont expect a lot from this. Hey at least this wasnt like the Paladin Series, seriously its over-rated."

Poal's review:

Now after reading the reviews, I see people confussed [and dumbfound].

In my opinion, the monk who Fina[The woman] calls, is either a representation of God, or he is her father. In the case of God, many people belive God has left us and doesn't answer our prayers, ofcourse this is a religious standpoint.

The act of taking her shoe off after breaking her heel, is a representation of, if life throws issues and problems at you, you have to deal with them, because they will happen, so Fina's heel breaks, she takes her [broken] shoe off.

The idea of humanity's point in life being "survivial" is also true[In my opinion]. Biologicaly, we are animals, supperior to others, but still animals. Everything we do is to survive, basicly like wild animals, just more "civilized".

I fully agree with his opinion!

Good

The flash is quite good, though I didn't really understand the meaning of it all.

Brilliant.

I think that most critisizms you'll pick up here are ones of people who have seen this and compaired it to a professional, mainstream high biz aniumation and forget that it's a flash. I guess that means that you're in the top field now. In that respect I commend you, I can relate to the story and message, great animation, fluid and audiable voiceacting and a simple yet effective narrative structure.

Good work. 10/10

stop writing overly critical reviews!!!!!

this was an awesome story and your drawings were amazing. i dont think it had to be longer because the message got through to me. but i found the end kind of depressing because its like your saying that you cant fix a messed up life, that you have to run away and leave it behind.
oh yea and what KALK said about the camera angles being a stretch at the begining... you have to remember that he accually HAD camera angles unlike most flashes on newgrounds.

anyway one of the best flashes on newgrounds.

OVERALL NOICE! XD

Not too bad

I liked it in some ways but as the review below says, I don't think it was long enough to really purvey your point as it should have. As for a choice of music I recommend you listen to Thomas Newman or some songs by Harry Gregson-Williams. It was too quick, but the message stayed the same.

The camera angles were a stretch at the beginning.

hmmmm...

Honestly I think you have a good thing going here but I think it needs to be more methodical. You have a really strong message here but how it was presented seemed very random and extremely quick. Something this deep should be flushed out more allowing the message to sink in more. Also it would be nice to have more of a story before the life changing event and also to show how she changed her life in the end. You kind of did that a little in the end showing her get a new hair cut but you should of added more.

The art in this flash is very well done. The animation could use a little more work.

The music didn't really work well for this. It didn't set the right mood for this piece.

But other then that you have a good start to something that can be truly cherished by the newgrounds community. You shouldn't have this animation be the final version. You should keep on working on it. Congrats for the idea!
