I think the primary aspect of this animation and the story in general that really gives it character is it's parallel to a silent film. The lack of dialogue presents this idea of a story based on what you see and leads one (or atleast it lead me) to find things that lie a little deeper than perhaps you even imagined. I very much enjoyed this and hope to see more from you both as an animator and as an author.
Wonderful. :) Keep up the amazing work.
The pig's head creep me out a little, by the surprise consumption of it by the family. I read through the Author comments to get what may have lead to that. It brought it more into perceptive.
The marriage at start appeared like rash young love that passed. I don't know the reason, nor care. The many possibilities could have range from so many elements. Compiling the little story plot evidence would have left too much to the imagination to what happen between the husband and wife. Besides, whatever or not what happen the women choose the creatures. Is depending on gain and lost of passion between the lovers really relevant? It skips the moral (I think exists) that maybe they shouldn't be together, since the love is gone.
What drove me was the pig's head was not the host, rather the messenger. Inviting the women to tea with the cat. Oh, it just hit me, her pet was also a cat. Maybe there is a connection, or not.
I give this 5 stars, good animation, the music fitted the theme, and the interesting mythological story. The story wasn't too clear cut, or ambiguous enough to drive away attention, which is good way to get people thinking.
They were both miserable, and in the end both of them got what they wanted. The ex-husband got his ring and diner back while she became the crazy cat lady and spent the rest of her time in a blissful fantasy world. I do love happy endings. Good job.
The whole thing with the pig's head is creapy and reminds me a bit of Lord of the Flies. I do find it enteraining and a very nice story, despite the chills I get from it.
