Loved it! Captivating animation, story telling and music score. The ending was a bit sad though, but realistic.

A melancholy "slice of life" film done in spectacular water color animation. A study in character, gesture, and animation as a medium; definitely something to deepen your cinema literacy. Makes me want to visit Scotland.
