This work "Kikumana" is an animation of a girl called Kikumana who acts like in a stage performance, the role defeated by such an ill circumstance though she tries to find herself. The primal aim is to get the audience feeling a strange atmosphere spread from this work. The image has a pictorial atmosphere and a documentary touch at the same time. Unrealistic phenomena take place there.

Only six minutes. What is possible to tell during this time? For example, about infinity and depth of human knowledge, about a tide of life, about the Universe which is hidden in a book, about riddles of the past and movement in the future, about development and stagnation, fading and the birth, about loneliness among books and the real depression. What is it? Fantastic fairy tale? Madness, incarnate fear, a hallucination, surrealism, a sketch on writing-book fields, history about terrible loneliness of the child in the illusive world of adults? Or is it simply black-and-white melancholy of self-knowledge?

If you're into cold, lonely and especially strange atmospheres in your movies, this might be the thing for you.

Story: 5/10

I gave it a middle score because frankly, there isn't much of a story, it's telling you something, but it's so open to interpretation that it feels wrong to rate it too high or too low because I wouldn't know what to use as a standard.

Through the film you'll be traveling through the main characters instable mind and go through a bunch of strange scenes. If you're into abstract storytelling and such things left open for interpretation, you'll most likely enjoy this.

Art: 7/10
