A really well done video, done entirely by hand which is a rarity these days. Most animated videos are products of massive production lines and computer projections. This video has been received warmly at various animation festivals.
The idea that death is in love with life, and that is why Death takes living beings, isn’t a new idea.
This version of Death is softer than most, metaphorically relating a more ‘human’ side of Death.
It would make sense that Death is a sad spirit, with a unquenchable desire for contact and communication.
