Absolutely amazing. The ending really changed my standpoint on the whole story though. 5/5
I enjoyed the portrait of the ethnic minority in a corrupt future. It was unique for an online animation.
I thought the style and atmosphere very much reminded me of 'The Matrix', specifically, 'The Animatrix'. I don't know if you drew stylistic influence from it, or it's all a big coincidence, but I enjoyed it very much.
Excellent movie and excellent story. Really love it.
A great masterpiece.
Not easy to understand completely (not in the least). The whole story is open to speculations and different readings. I think it's even impossible to say whether the ending is sad, gloomy, dispirited, unjust... maybe even happy, because by losing his life (that he despised and of which he was so ashamed that he wanted to dump it for a new one) the poor little man stood - angry with himself - in a place above all others, for before the end he reached a full awareness of the society he looked up to so much. It's just a matter of which layer of interpretration the single spectator chooses to look at.
In my opinion it's also an easy way out to speak of plagiarism, or intellectual theft if you prefer: the (maybe by many viewers unnoticeably) deep psicology of the characters is perceived so vividly through the flawless animations, cuts and drawings that the whole idea becomes original and (horrificly) fresh in every aspect.
Furthermore, I believe the music on the background is so agonizingly monotonous for a specific stylistic choice (oh, it brings much more despair to the big picture! Being it timeless and carefree, just try to feel the creepy and unwavering discrepancies with the portrayed themes).
Nearly impossible to be rated properly. Bravo.
