yeah, I imagine the frame by frame hand coloring wasn't easy. But it is beautiful isn't. I would see that clip on television and in different compilation videos and I never knew what the film was called till recently.

By the way :) I love your '7 things' dear Asherette. I keep thinking about how you'd have to go by boat every evening for your meals while at the monastery. Must've been surreal, thank you for sharing all of it...
