I've got to say. this animated short really touched my heart. From a mature animation student's perspective, I actually found this to be well timed in story, well detailed in design and subtly comprehensible when it comes to the tragic theme.
From an emotional perspective, I have never felt so sorry for anyone quite like Medusa.
I'll be honest, after watching this (along with further reading written evidence from different greek myth sites and wikipedia), I sometimes ask myself..."Who was the REAL monster? Medusa? Or Athena?"
