Allegorical Journey searching for lost water
The meaning is very simple.
it is about ups an downs in life. life stops, life starts to go on again.
other questions have to be answered by viewer.
my deviant art gallery:
Very good animation, just MARVULOUS!
I felt like I was watching "Howl's Moving Castle" all over again! I have no idea what the hell it was about, but it just simpily reminded of my all time favourite movie! 10 stars!!! **********
what the heck happened?!?!i dont get it,but i like the art tho!
Good animation, subtle sound... the allegory is a little confusing however, what you're saying is - a boy and a girl can only get their vitality back and begin sailing through life again by... sleeping together? :) And why are they sailing in girl's boat after sleeping together? Where have you ever seen that happen?
boredom but kind of good
critique and author's story
For those of you who didn't understand, this is what the author wrote in one of his previous responses
"i wrote a little explanation of this movie, but it is just my opinion about it, because i kinda wanted to leave the story open for different interpretations.
The story is very simple.
Water is a symbol of vitality. The boy loses it, and stops sailing through life, maybe he loses his point of life and the world drastically changes, he gets isolated.
The boy tries to do something, he travels searching and meets a person with a same problem. They fall asleep - sleeping is waiting and getting back strength. Then suddenly water comes back, and the world changes back to what it was before, but they will need some time to get used to it again.
Why water comes back? i think this is a question which has to be answered by the viewer.
(sorry for my bad English :)"
Before reading the critique, it though tthe animation could've been better, the creatures weren't appealing, but the art was done well....the story was hard to interpret, a bit slow and although the story was brought to, what i think was its full potential, it was a bit weak. BUT
even though i would normally hate this type of story, i can tell that the author put alot of time and effort into this, and with a good understandable story, the author will make something close to a masterpiece :)
