"A deceptively simple, elegantly understated visual style, it can be easy to overlook the intricate and seamless meshing of drawn and stop motion that is playing out here.
Hiding in plain view and utilised perfectly to demarcate the variety of physical and mental ‘spaces’ the film moves around in, it’s a wonderful example of this hybrid technique and all the more ambitious for being a student film"
Malcom Turner, London International Animation Festival
