Revelation animation movie in 2010. It was nominated as best film in Animation Category in the most important films festivals: Oscar, NYC Films Critics, Golden Globes, European Film Awards, etc. This British/French production is “far” from the expensive American or Japanese projects; however it surprised for its exquisite draws and its beautiful music. Movements are like in a video-game and the plot is poetic and harsh. Maybe this is its weakest point because this film is a mute film and it's very difficult to get a complex story without words. But the final result is very very interesting and I recommend this movie to you if you love poetry.
To Remember: Music and Draws.
To forget: The plot is a bit simple.
