美しくリアルな3DCGの背景に、何故か針金人間の登場人物たち。 しかし、その針金人間が人形のようにリアルなCGキャラ以上に演技を魅せるのだから、これは、もう「やられた」という以外に言葉も有りません。

Although the storyline itself was an ordinary one (love and hatred story between a man and a woman), I was amazed at the 3D techniques as well as how "wire faces" can have expressions.

The amount of emotional messages carried by some (rendered) pieces of wire is amazing. Though, I disliked some of the choices in the camera movements and editing.

こんなに無機質なワイヤーで、 人間の愛憎を表現するのはすごい。 ラストも、恐怖感こみあげてきました。

面白い!引き込まれた! ワイヤーで人間を表現しているため、表情やしぐさの細かい部分を自分勝手に想像しながら、観ました。 ストーリーは単純ではあるが、CG、美術もすばらしく見ごたえがありました。
