    That was awesome! I want to see a feature film done by Polder.

    Totally enjoyable, from concept to design. Proves its the story that carries the film.
    Hope this can find a wider market and be another vision available.

    Beyond charming.

    It was pleasant and the semi-painterly style lends a rich textural nuance without ruining the film’s simulative quality but they ruined the story by giving away the ending in the title.

    Terrific! Nice acting, I dug the stylized CG, and a nice message to boot. More please!

    Wonderful stuff. Would that THE SMURFS had looked anywhere near as appealing.
