Have anyone seen this amazing movie? It wasn't really advertised in the U.S. but, I saw a preview for it when I watched Paprika. Anyway, it's really amazing movie it in terms of story and the artwork is absolutely sumptuous I couldn't believe my eyes I first time I watched it. I highly recommend it if you haven't!

Cool, comment back on your thoughts of the movie when you see it ;)

it's one of those hate-it-or-love-it movies...

i'm on the OMG THIS IS A MASTERPIECE side.

:)

Yeah, some people may hate the the style the characters are drawn but, even then background and environment of the movie is pure eye candy. I actually really like the style personally of the way the characters are drawn, I think it's pretty unique and distinctive. I am glad you like it too^^
