It is not easy for 'Hard lines' to compete with feature films. Maybe a competition only among animated films will be more fairly. However, I noticed a great idea and exlusive performance! This is one of the greatest 2D films I have seen. And beleive me, I have seen a lot! How old are you, dear?

Very interesting movie, well done animations, and the most important - it shows the real life of some of young people in many countries all over the world, even in countries like USA or old European democracies.
There is on what to think after watching this short movie, but with deep social idea.

Great, Great, Great!!! Great story, unique animation, fantastick feeling of colours and of course A Great Performance!
