Ah, I have a weakness for good stuff like this. Also, this is totally my family. I have to live at home with my elderly parents as an autistic adult, with no way to escape or work, and no financial means, and it has yet to stop. (SSI is a sick damn joke) Although my dad did finally get his hearing checked after 20 years of us running screaming and crying from the room because he wouldn't stop yelling for hours, begging him to get his hearing checked and to stop terrifying us with his powerful lungs and voice.
The metal golem-man/father figure was my favorite, he was the prettiest! I am partial to that color. But the cream landscape was BEAUTIFUL. And the poor kiddly! ;O I think though, that the end was not what I expected. I expected the child to intervene, or maybe the parents to stop and finally pay attention to what they were doing to the child. but, they never really do, do they, no matter how loud you scream. Beautiful little story. I like Silents, and have a long-established weakness for good Stop-Motion.
