Great. This must’ve taken you quite a while!

Bravo! The animation and music in this is amazing and tells a story that is tragic and horrifying yet beautiful in its execution. You have done a fantastic job here and I praise you for it. Kudos to you!

Excellent music. the movie was effective without any sound effects at all, quite the acoplishment. It was long but worth the wait. I am confused where the father would be in all this, but in fairy tales you learn to not question things. Not as scary I guess. I did jump once when the monster first appeared, well done. As for the ending, its not really flat like people say. The story tells of tradgety and leaves it hanging. You don't need to know anymore, her children are dead, her life is over.

good one very good all art, music, theme,sufferment all in corrct place and time cool my respects

I gotta admit, this made me shed a tear and I love the animation... but that was it? No offense, but the ending was flat. It could use a more interesting storyboard. Good job, though. 3/5
