Synopsis

Surreal cutout (kiri-gami) animation following a young girl's physical journey, which is also an inner voyage through which she will learn all the pain and joy of life. She travels to an anonymous Western city, a bizarre dreamscape cluttered with elements from works by Dali, Magritte, de Chirico and Escher. The journey will change her completely but when she returns she will be the only one who knows how she has changed.
(The poem in the film is by Su Tong-Po, a famous Chinese poet)

This short tried to tackle various topics symbolically but the storytelling was a mess throughout.

A tad bit of non relevant Japanese spoken audio. Aside from that nothing else was spoken. There was a couple English words here and there but not in subtitles more in scenery.
a true art film

Story
The artist took on multiple topics and expressed them mostly in symbolically fashion. An okay idea but without subtitles or some other form of guidance the viewer becomes lost in this symbolic jungle. Which is why some call the story a mess.

Art
While animation was limited to certain aspects in frame the art show was never the same. For a viewer to relax and appreciate something visual they have to ...
