The only other review of this video seems to be ignorant of Ogino Shigegi's work.
While it is not traditional in the sense that it does not have characters and a "storyline," you have to keep in mind that this video was created at a time (mid 1930s) before techicolor become official and where displaying film in color was in its extreme infantile stage.
His flashing between reddish and greenish is making use of these basic colors to simulate a natural color before movies were able to replicate this. It's an experimental video, but also one of the first Avante Garde expressions of a video in a
time when every drawn video was some kind of cartoon with cartoon characters. The video also simulates three dimensions, a unique depart from the two-dimensional (2.5 dimensional) nature of every other hand-drawn video at the time.
In short, this video was not made for your entertainment, it was made to push the boundaries of animation, which it did (hence how it won 1st place at the St. Teccian Cup). Complaining about how it's "not enjoyable hence the low rating" is like saying "broccoli is a bad food because it's not sweet." It's using a very insular scope of defining what's good.
Not to mention, the video is a SILENT FILM from THE 30s! Who in the right mind would complain that a silent film has no sound?
