my opinion i see yeah it is indeed about war but i see a man who takes care of the dead bodys of his fallen soldiers. and the symbol is like a cult thing kinda like the nazis had. the rat acts like a poison. the man with no lips is in love with the woman leaving her to himself the median man loves her but wants to be with her but can not be with her because the man with no lips loves her secretly and he doesn't consider the man that deals with the dead body's a soldier so the medical man decides to become one but dies on the field. the woman loved him too that's why she died a suicide attempt that succeeded. and the rat is already filled with all the diseases and w/e it was drinking it killed the man with no lips when he injected it into himself. the question i have is did he know it would do that all the time and was he doing it because she kept rejecting him? ~shrugs~


I got most of the symbolism

what did the rat symbolize thats the only part which kinda confused me

anywho you did good


This is a very dramatic animation that to me explains war and love
but there seems to be more
I hope that others can see you artwork

Well not the best

but not the worst either people complaining over it is crazy.
It doesn't have that much violence compared to a war. Go and see for yourself well I ain't going that's for sure. I feel that this movie shows the essence of pain that people get in a war. Surely feeling really bad after you killed someone the first time is enough to make you puke twice. Well since long time ago there has been wars. what was once to protect oneself is programmed into ones brain to make one a heartless killer. In Iraq for instance a whole lot of children has been murdered/or watched their families die of bombs gunfire from both Iraqs side and from the American. Well I don't like to talk about war so I'll stop here but I'll say that this movie represents war in it's own way and it atleast deserves a 8.


A short work about a serious topic indeed, but so overloaded with gore that I must assume that it is more about being fascinated with the horrors of war than about being appalled by them.
One of the previous Comments even included the term 'subtle imagery' - are you serious? The movie included more violence than your average horror movie!
There are certainly other ways to depict War critically, and assert ones feelings about it's hoorors, but this is simply one of the most disgusting pieces of work I have seen up to date, and that is NOT a compliment.
Using people's disgust of war to gain acknowledgment simply because you depict these horrors in an equally horrible manner is something I just cannot approve of.
