Life, death, age, youth, and more are juxtaposed in this fantastic short - and love ties it all together. Aesthetically beautiful - nails that 50's Japanese look. Reframing seems perfectly natural. Excising the Karate from Karate Kid works better than it has any right to. I have a soft spot for the concept of TM2YC's other contribution, Birthday Presents - but the exceptional execution of this short wins me over to declare it my personal favorite short of this Consecution.
