It also received the NTR Award for Best European Short Animation at Go Short.

The jury said:
"We loved the way this animated film takes the ingredients of dark children's' fairytales and storybooks and takes them to new perverted extremes. The maker shows great control over his medium by making unconventional but successful choices in voice-over and music to complete his stunning visual style."

And at the Holland Animation Film Festival it got a Special Mention.
Jury report:
"The film has an imaginative, stunning and mysterious design for depicting a world full of cruelty and tenderness."


Not everyone likes it though. Here's a review from the Annecy Animation Festival:
