This is a very unique film and one of the most original ones I think I've ever watched. It truly leaves so much to your imagination in interpreting its message. I believe tweens and teens will enjoy this because it really makes you think. It makes you think about the future, the present, and everything in between. It's part sci-fi and part experimental. The most appealing thing is definitely the images. This type of animation is so amazingly creative and interesting. The storyline allows the audience the freedom to make their own interpretation about what the film is about and what is going on in the protagonist's mind. You can't help but wonder what will happen next. The sound and animation keep you on the edge of your seat, wondering if the small insect will get away or will take over the world. It flows well, although I got a little lost as it played out. The special effects and animation are excellent and the sound is clear and suitable. It is quite creative in its use of small amounts of color against a mostly black and white background. My favorite scene is watching the cockroach lift the type off of the page of a book and destroying it and eventually morphing into a human. It gives one pause to think about the meaning of books and words and what life might be like without them. Whew! I strongly recommend the film to children ages 8 to 18 as well as adults and rate it 4 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Lizeth G and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic and KIDS FIRST! Juror.
