"Life no color" plays with no dialogue against a sparse IDM soundtrack, opening with a boy who is being put-down by a group of his peers. It is about 4:00 and worth watching twice, if you appreciate it.
I think the film did a great job of placing you immediately in a real world situation with a character that was accessible. I also thought the cell shading of the carousel and the choice of background art, and how it ties into the character and back-story, was smart, impeccable and interesting, enriching the "contained" environment. I enjoyed the metaphor for return and meetings with the carousel under the bridge, and soundtrack went hand and hand with the pacing to punctuate the plot's climax.
Overall I think its a great short story about chance meetings, and possibly young love. More so, I like how it ended with the kind of mystery it started with. read more
