Ring of Fire

WARNING! Animated depictions of mature themes in the following film. Parental discretion is advised, especially since this is an animated film, children may be attracted to watching it and you will have to explain a whole lot of stuff that you are not yet prepared to explain.

"But much more, we waited for beauty to touch us from somewhere way beyond."
This is the animated short Ring of Fire from respected German animator Andreas Hykade. It was released in 1999 and won 11 international animated film awards. It's quite artistic, not in the way that word is thrown around to mean annoying and deliberately confusing, but rather it allows the viewer to discern between true beauty and what may seem attractive but really will tear your soul violently to shreds (dramatic enough for ya?). The story is thankfully straightforward. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
Part 1: (5 minutes)

Part 2: (10 minutes)
