| A cascade of colors in a gray world
I'll keep it short. For the first 30 minutes I had my finger on the OFF button because it was too cheesy and too childish, i can even say it was bad. Then suddenly it got serious, emotional and deep.

I was amazed at the bright colors, the characters, the strange dialog, the caption of broken souls of today. It's a masterpiece dealing with very present problems today, loneliness, being different, feeling broken and yet experience something great.

The many different characters in this movie made me feel like I could relate to all of them on some level, and I think you could too.

It's a very memorable movie. It has a touching and different story from everything else out there today. Just give it time and you'll understand.
