HiiRagi loves 9

People must see this film.  It is just beautiful.  I can't believe I haven't seen it before, the art, design and animation is stunning. Basically it is about 'The Scientist' who builds nine homunculus (that's Latin for 'little human', what a great word) -like dolls to restore life to the world, using his own soul and lifeforce to bring them to life.  It was the baby of an animation student by the name of Shane Acker (his original 10 minute short film is an extra on the DVD and worth watching) and caught the attention of a certain Mr Tim Burton, who felt it could be a full length feature film, and the rest as they say is history...
