| Very well told story of human nature.
The story and animation were both well made and told. The story deals with themes such as starvation and how the environment we are at shapes us to what we become, or changes who we are. They succeeded putting a lot of emotion in only just 70 minutes, going through themes of love, friendship and hatred in a way that made me feel sorry for all of the characters, even if they did horrible things to each other, but mostly out of necessity.

One of the best animated films i've seen in a long time, and a lot better story than you get in most live action movies out there.

Warmly recommended.
