Special Mention: "Considerevole lavoro sotto il profilo della tecnica d'animazione e ricco di elementi simbolici di rilievo, il lavoro affronta tematiche di grandissima attualità, con una chiave di lettura piena di spunti di riflessione. Il personaggio protagonista, nel quale ciascuno di noi può facilmente identificarsi, compie alla fine una significativa scelta di affermazione della propria individualità e, di conseguenza, della propria libertà." Simona Lisi, Alda Terracciano, Enrico Tomaselli.
