The movie maps the journey of a magical train through surreal landscapes as a metaphor for a poet's reveries. It captures the state of dreaming or imagination that has a constant sense of flow like travelling in a train or reclining beside the eternal rise and fall of the ocean. That space which is full of journeying and forgetfulness...

Looks like a professional animated movie, and I'm guessing the low quality sound is to make it fill less, but It spoils the craftsmanship of the animations. Also had to reload my browser to see the movie because of load time so a process bar or preloader would help. The fact that the movie starts over after the credits are just lazy in my opinion, making this one of the most beautiful gif's I have ever seen. but to sum up, the movie needs:

1. a pre loader or process bar (I prefer pre loader).
2. better quality sound.
3a. a stop command at the last frame.
3b. a replay button to the people whom would like to see it again.

Get this and I would give it 100 stars. ;)

Dear CrazyBurn87

Thank you for the wonderful review...and the time taken to detail out what you feel will help in making it more viewer friendly. There is only one problem that we converted an MP4 into swf using a convertor therefore it is not amenable to a pre-loader or other coding. Also i like the idea of everything looping like a endless cycle of dreaming, the train comes back into those landscapes...
