I watched this many years ago. And now watching it again, I still can't hold my tears. It's really beautiful.

我發現這個, 主要因為朋友send了另一個給我

他說這令他想起我的畫.
不過我並不喜歡「光之塔」, 反而在旁看到「Father and daugther」的連結才深受感到.

事實上, 我感到所謂master, 或者是深深打動人的事物, 其實只是在平凡中加多一點點想像, 但就是欠了這麼一點, 整個風景便將完全不同.

Father and daugther 讓孩子尋回父親的比喻讓我深受感動也是這個原因.

很多人以為父母親的愛是理所當然的, 但我卻覺得世上沒有「理所當然的」的事, 唯有去尋覓和去了解別人, 愛才會發生.

也可能因為我從來沒有感受到多少父母的愛,「光之塔」那種感情離我很遠, 它陳調濫調的敍述也完全沒感動我, 那些場景也讓我感到有點虛假。

但要做一個動畫是多麼的不易, 所以我很佩服「光之塔」的作者柏舟, 只是不能應同這個故事罷了.

多謝你和我分享這兩個動畫,也告訴了我你的感受

I have watched the Lighthouse too. And yes, it's just different.

Father and Daughter is simple and personal. I love it because it's a little story that everyone can relate to. The story is jointed with little simple details such as the changes of weather and companions. There is nothing special or trying to move you. But there are traces of memory everyone has. There is always a stranger on that road beside the girl. When the girl is little, there was an old woman. When the girl became old, there was a little girl there. The context is like, we are just reading one story of this one girl, and sure everyone has their own story hidden in their heart.

And in the end, who doesn't want to bend time and live that imaginative moment.
