Directed by Loris Pilorget, Graine (French for seed) is an awesome little fantasy tale about an afflicted wanderer seeking a cure for his ailment. Similar to Princess Mononoke's prince Ashitaka, a corruption is spreading throughout his body, which leads him to wander towards a holy mountain in an attempt to find solace.
Really dug the watercolor look that Pilorget captured and the dialogue less narrative, which is all played out using expressions. Graine ultimately leaned a bit on the morbid side regarding it's conclusion, but the overall aesthetic brought back reminders of Zelda and Team Ico games.
