I can't even belive how many emotions can be portrayed in characters with no eyes, ears and mouth.
How you can become so attached to these people, their journey, their story.
This made me feel like I was there, with the music matching the scenes and the sounds going with what happened, I really felt sad at the end.
The lights, sound, and art was touching, and you made the story play out perfectly.
I give five stars for such an emotional yet fantastic piece.
I love this movie with all my heart.

Very touching, one of the best I've ever seen, and it made me sad. :(

Ambitious... the story was simple and the art was okay, but I felt the pacing was too slow and there was a lack of payoff at the end. Music was great.

Dramatic, powerful, and dark but none the less predictable. The art is impressive, and the score is good aswell, but I personally didnt like the way the monster was revealed or how it died. When you reveal the antagonist it has to be extra dramatic to make up for the lost element of mystery. On the way it died, i have no eloquent explaination for why i dont like it, it was simply to cliche for my liking.
With respect, 4.5
