    Beautiful film. Wonderful and expressive animation.Nice story and although it pushes the sentimentality a bit over the edge near the end, it remains a pleasant change from the mindlessly boring stories and joke-a-minute 3D animations such as the latest "Ice Age" film.

    Almost experimental. Great soundtrack. Moody as hell. Tracking shots like those of Birth. Reminds me of Roeg's "The Man Who Fell to Earth" in that the film is experienced through the eyes of the alien. Not much is explained. I like the mystery.

    This is one film that did not appeal to me in the least. I was not even particularly impressed by the cinematography. I won't criticize this one because my feelings about it are obviously biased.
