memories in blocks

6 years ago at Jul 23 17:35
Your life is like "blocks" in which your memories are on, the feelings of solitude are filled with sadness as you pass through those blocks, because the past always seems better than future.

"A wonderful and emotional little story. I really liked the atmosphere and its symbolism. Everything was good about this little movie: the silent plot, the music, the visuals, the main character and especially the conclusion. "

"Yllättävän haikea ja surumielinen animaatio, joka on piirrosjäljeltään mukavan persoonallinen japanilaiseksi standardiksi muodostuneen perusanimen seassa. Tarinankerronta on kekseliästä, eikä tapahtumien selkeneminen katsojalle ole haastavaa dialogin puuttumisesta huolimatta. Suurin hienous The House of Small Cubesissa kuitenkin on sen yksinkertaisuudessaan raju tunnelataus: vaikka menneiden aikojen tapahtumat koetaan jonkun ulkopuolisen silmin, vieläpä piirroshahmon, silti katsojan v"
