So he gave up his dream, but it was fine after all...
Even though it ends well it just feels sad somehow. Was expecting it to be like an animated, isolated, simpler version of Happy Feet without all the focus on the feet, but this was really different after all. I like the sound. I like the style. I'm not as fond of the heavy melancholy that goes with it, but you do capture that emotion... wanting something and never getting it... way of life. Seems to follow suite with the story of how it came to be too.
Also really do wonder what mood it might've evoked with the original music.
