Powerfully poignant, profound, emotional - the music, sound, illustration, and a personal interpretation of the film viewing experience.

A poignant story of Love and Loss. Told simply by the use of painting and a musical score. So much of life happens without verbal dialogue...

The art, sound, and music is great. The story is a bit so-so, and I feel like the description of the film gives a different impression to what the story really is.
