    mizu no kotoba, a short review for a short film.

  • The Time of Eve warm-up
    This short looks like Yoshiura's sandbox for "Time of Eve" with the handful of characters interacting in a cafe.

The actual storyline of Aquatic Language hops around to the various cafe tables, but they are somehow linked together. Overall, a nice piece.

  • Very Short Very Cool
    I was interested in the theme of the story from the start and felt it accomplished what is was intended to do. Showing that the same situation or event can perceived differently from person to person. Despite the length its a pretty good watch for anyone. I def recommend Mizu no Kotoba to all and after you watch check out Time of Eve same director. All in All, Well done.
