A whimsical journey of hunger and charm.
3/5

Review

In Yasmin Lee’s enchanting fantasy-themed animation, the audience is transported into a miniature world with a big appetite. Voiced and crafted single-handedly by Lee, the story follows a half-starved paper doll foraging for sustenance in her garden. Lee’s light-hearted approach creates a charming atmosphere, emphasizing the character’s determination and wit.

The strength of this animation lies in its delightful characterization. Lee’s creativity shines through, crafting an endearing protagonist that captures the audience’s heart. The simplicity of the animation, while homemade, adds to the film’s charm, allowing the narrative to take center stage without distraction.

However, the film’s only drawback is its fleeting runtime, leaving viewers craving for more of the whimsical universe Lee has introduced. With its comical tone and entertaining plot, the story holds great potential for further exploration, perhaps evolving into a wider series.

This tiny tale is a testament to Lee’s storytelling prowess, showcasing her ability to create engaging narratives with limited resources. It’s a testament to creativity and humor, leaving audiences with a smile on their faces and a hunger for more adventures in this delightful miniature world.
