** Actually serious review at the end **

I thought Mochibei was good, but this.... This is otherworldly!

Watashi no Kao exemplifies everything that I love about abstract short films. It's only 3 minutes long, yet so profound and genius! Unlike Mochibei, the story isn't that hard to understand, but it's executed even more exquisitely.

Watashi no Kao primarily tells the coming-of-age story of a little girl who's trying her best to grow up as a normal person.

Watashi no Kao or in english; "My Face," is a short, abstract dementia horror animation. It seemingly deals with issues of insecurity and self-identity. In it a little girl is asking repeatedly if someone is ready, as one would in a game of hide and seek, before revealing her face to the viewers, which twists into a number of abstract abominations.

The art is stunning, as one would expect if they had ever seen animations by the animator of this piece. It's unsettling, erratic and most of all, fitting for the message the piece seems to want to impart. The animation is exceedingly smooth at times ...
