I want to love this movie. The pensive, philosophical tone and beautiful, painterly animation really appeal to me. But I found the elements of Christian mysticism (for lack of a better term) to be mostly inscrutable and occasionally off-putting. A unique, intriguing, and somewhat frustrating film.
I guess this must be one of the slowest animation movies ever made. The title could have been « The blue cat starring at you for at least third of the runtime » or « Strangers sitting just next to you while the train is bloody empty »
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
