I found that this movie being only fourteen minutes felt like a full movie. The plot - though dark - was amazing. The character's determination was nothing I had ever seen before. Sintel passed through scorching desserts and freezing ice lands just to rescue her dragon. But what was most impressing is how much depth was put into a movie created on the program Blender! It just goes to show you that as long as you put your heart into something you can make it happen. But I must warn people that this was the saddest movies I have ever seen. Overall, though , if you can fight back tears or can at least cry freely, please, be ready2see this movie!
