    Deeply touching! Artisticly superior to any thing I’ve seen in a very long time.
    Love the story, love the editing.
    Love the muppets.

    Beautifully interpreted musically as well.

    I had tears in my eyes.

    Thank you!

    This is the most beautiful movie I have seen the last 30 years. What a feeling! Only one more word: U are a movie God!

    Simply astonishing. Simple, yet so effective cinematic effects, the best editing i have seen in a small movie like this, and a story that made my stomach turn a little, performed in a musical kind of style with no words, and no real acted out scenes, which there was no need for, and should definitively not be. This is a movie that doesen’t just touch but makes you think, and if you excuse me i need to call my family and tell them i love them.

    Gorgeous. A wonderful connection between humor and sorrow. It’s elegant yet oh so creepy. I found out about it through Prix Ars 05… and it was the best one I saw.

    Thank you for creating such a stunning work of art.
    The range of emotions I felt while watching the piece
    was amazing, considering how long the animation lasted.
    It was dark yet, elegant. Very timeless.

    Please excuse my ignorance, but am I doing something wrong? I can’t see this video, all I see is the quicktime sign with a ? on it. I thought it might be loading, but I’ve let it sit for about half an hour, still nothing. I’m dying to see this!

    Wow. I just got linked here randomly, not knowing what to expect. It was amazingly bizarre, creative, ominous, dark, and wonderful. The music was breathtakingly sad and perfect. Definitely the best film I’ve ever seen online. Very, very nice work.

    Happened upon this as well. WOW. So many subtlties and the music was perfect!! So touching. Agreed it’s the best online film…and possibly one of the best short films I have seen in a long time.

    Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. It’s wonderful to see small acts of creativity can be appreciated just as well as larger ones.

    Very strange and intriguing. I almost wanted to stop watching but felt compelled to finish. It was unique and creative!

    Please tell me there is somewhere I can download a full screen version of this! Brilliant and moving piece of work. Thank you for sharing.

    Wow…that was beautiful! I liked the brief chicken cameo, and the trumpet solo at the beginning…and well, all of it! Stunning work. It has kind of an ‘Eraserhead’ feel to it, but very touching.
