METAFOR by ~decklansheur ..."I'd love to see this movie featured, it simply deserves it. It carries such deep emotion. While watching it I couldn't take my eyes off a simple frame. It tells so much in such a short time." ( Suggested by plejaden and Featured by KariAnnLax )

Congratulations to all who worked on this brilliant film!  It's masterfully done, both philosophically and technically.  (Mind, this is merely my humble opinion as someone who has never worked in cinema.)

@06:40Wonderful short and I like the mood of the short in general.The flies, they were a very clever idea! What I also liked was the fact it wasn't in English, I'm not exactly sure why I think the language just sounds a lot more fitting to the mood than English would be. ooh and I just love the '...then I am ... a happy fly" line.

@07:36I think the message was conveyed too 'directly' to the viewer, in my opinion the film should be simpler. for example the gunshot (the sound)wasn't necessary. for me.
congratulations!! I enjoyed watching it.

@07:10I loved the message in the film, as well as its delivery. The black and white brings out the composition of the scenes, making it feel like a perfect photo in motion.
I personally thought that if the film was just slightly more widescreen, it would have been even better. Nevertheless, a great narrative!
