Quote:
"While dealing with the timeless theme of aging, infirmity, and death as seen through the innocent eyes of children, the animation also exudes the warmth and sometimes self-deprecating humour of first-generation Jewish urbanites. Leaf's animation technique of continually changing washes of water-colour and ink on a glass plate created an almost cryptic rhythm of object-blending-into-object, beyond the earthbound rules of fixed observation."
-- Gary Evans
