Parent of a 5 and 7 year old Written byLH Powell April 12, 2014


This is a haunting animated short that is beautifully made but it is not for children. Unlike most children's entertainment that includes or implies violence, in this film the emotional impulses and impacts of violent behavior are very real and very clear. It is just too intense for children. As an adult, I found it disturbing but ultimately hopeful; both of my children were just horrified.

Parent of a 8 year old Written byameyer75 January 7, 2014

Too violent for 8 years old.

I thought this would be appropriate for my 8 year old, but the opening scene had a boy shoved in a dumpster with a rifle pointed at him. I was appalled, and turned it off immediately. My 8 year old doesn't need to see that kind of scary violence.
