Though paced too intensely animation wise, The Life's use of light as its subject is cleverly used throughout the film. Animation wise, the actors drastically change actions; too much that watching it borders on difficult. Despite this, The Life uses light and how it touches life excellently. The main character experiences life through light. He is raised with it, suffers with it, and grows with it.
