Our Review

This film is very good in terms of the animation & art direction. Being an art film, it opens the door for imagination for the viewer to perceive & reflect what they see from their point of view. It was very interesting to read a totally different perspective from the creators’ point of view. I as a viewer, perceived it as below: -

“Communication is sometimes chaos. Silence could be stronger. One rises above all in spite of not communicating.
