Very haunting! I would have to agree with Ann that I believe it was a depiction of death. With the loss of all of her worldly possessions, she is left running away from the inevitable only to be comforted by reaching it. I think it is a wonderful film to watch and pick apart with a friend, ...Read more

Splendid depiction of death.

Very well made! Her expressive eyes are unbelievable realistic for a puppet!? And filled with metaphors... some of which I'm still trying to sort... Annoyingly dubious at the end.

Incredibly more thrilling than expected. Who knew such a pesky, little insect could carry such significance in one's life? Very beautiful, breath-taking animation. Definitely worth a watch!

Wow! What a strange and delightful, curious and creative animated short film. What is it about? Transformation? Death? Possessions? Travel? I look forward to hearing others comment, but I believe it is about Death myself, but along the way it is an adventure, as life should be, and simply ...Read more
