Surprisingly, I actually enjoyed it. The main reason (ok probably the ONLY reason) is because of the art. So I'll talk about that first.
ART -- 9/10
I thought it was beautiful. The style is definitely different, but it was refreshing and very very pretty. (this is just personal taste though) Some panels literally look like museum art pieces. I like how some panels were drenched in dark, grey tones and others had light, pastel colors; making the atmosphere seem dangerous and gloomy or dreamy, respectively.
STORY AND CHARACTER -- 3/10
Clumped these two factors together since they are similar. (plus, I can't elaborate much on either of them. There's practically zero development in both areas)
Well, being a oneshot spanning only 14 pages (or a bit less if you take out the cover page and description) who can expect a 'proper' story and relatable characters. The 'story' (the word 'concept' is probably more fitting in this case) is extremely.. Confusing. Don't try to read too much into it. There might be some sort of obscure, deeper meaning in this seemingly meaningless manga but honestly, I'd rather just enjoy the art and not think about what message it's conveying. (if there's even one)
ENJOYMENT AND OVERALL -- 7/10
Despite giving it such low scores in its story, I'll still give it a 7 in enjoyment and overall. Because the art is so fucking good. But if you don't like the art.. Well you'll just downright hate this manga.
It's not everyone's cup of tea. But if you decide to try reading it, just remember to have an open mind and don't anticipate a conventional form of story. I think the key to appreciating this manga is to not understand it, but to feel it. If that makes sense?
And I will end off here because this review is becoming WAY too long for a 14-page manga. Thanks for reading (if you still are hahah) and hope it was helpful ^^ read more

A DREADFUL 2
Ermm even after reading the plot... it still didn't get to me. The plot puzzled me...
'Alice waits with her mom in an elevator' WHAT THEY WERE IN AN ELEVATOR... no fool it didn't seem like it since the drawing was in my opinion different, but i will go to that point in a moment.
It didn't stand out, it didn't make sense to sum it up, if i had a question to ask the mangka it would have been. "Were you high when you wrote this manga?"
Well, let's just stay, the mangaka at least made an effort in the art. The art was very unique and different. The use of water colours was very nice but not what he drew. The pencil work on this was very definite the strokes are beautiful and i actually admire this guys work... BUT yes BUT
The colours were dull and sometimes, too much was going on and it didn't really tell me what was going on. I didn't feel like it attracted me... Nor did i get a comfortable environment when i read it.
A PATHETIC 1
Seriously... nothing about the characters. I mean all i saw was a "few"horny men looking at a woman's breast and then what looked like was the woman stripping and started to touch her... *cough cough* OK little girl 'Alice' seriously whats wrong with your mother? Of course it's wrong, are you not stupid enough to tell your mummy to stop what she's doing ¬_¬ hello! *sigh* the characters are messed up.
No personality reference and you couldn't even tell when Alice went into another world or if she's the woman at the end or is that her mother
IT'S MESSED UP =_=ll
A PATHETIC 1
i don't think i really enjoyed it to be honest i mean, when i read it i never looked at the synopsis and... i seriously had the WTH face. For the 14 pages i read i really did feel disturb... "what the hell did i just seriously read."
OVERALL: (Drum Roll...)
At least i didn't give it a 1...
The art is which i admire the most since i was surprised as this artist... IS FRENCH ( i was like WOW) I really admire him but this work is like what, weird, disturbing, random, confusing and what?
Never read anything like this. I wouldn't exactly recommend this to anyone in particular, not that i would ever to be honest...
It never hurts to read something different but for something that's only 14 pages and makes your head spin in circles just to figure out what actually happens *even though it tells you* i just would not read this ever again. read more

Overall I gave it 6 because of the concept of the story and the character but that shouldn't mean don't read it because as I said I gave the art a 10 and if you like art you should look at this. Since I gave the art 10 my overall enjoyment (which is based on the art) is a 10. read more
