Goddamn it, this deserves a better score. How the hell this doesn't have a better rating is beyond me. It deserves more recognition!
The effects, the way in which the story is told, the details, its atmosphere and the range of emotions depicted, the effect on the viewer... It's truly amazing. It gave me goosebumps. And I can't believe this was done in 2001! It's so polished...
It would've been great if the poem you wrote was somehow included in the animation. It's a fine little piece that adds to the overall experience.
I really can't say much more. I'll be waiting for the third part. Amazing job, dude. Outstanding.
