Very touching video ! Tekken's Animation, Pendulum, with music by Muse
Today a TV program in Japan introduced this animation made by a forgotten comedian of Japan called Tekken. The work is called Furiko, which means a pendulum. I really really cried when I saw this. Tears dropped on my desk endlessly.
It's just an rough made animation, as you see, the pictures move a little aukwardly. But the story and picture expression are really touching and easy to understand how a couple of man and woman grow and die in the stream of time.
The man in the animation lives his selfish life by sacrificing his wife's heart when he was young, and at the end, he regrets a lot of what he did when he faced with his wife's last time of her life. He tries to stop the time because he doesn't want to end it before seeing his wife's happiness, but his wife let the time go as if she knew nobody can bring back the passed time even in the time of her coma.
At the end, they both go to heaven as they see all their life again.
I think I'm so old enough to feel this animation's story so sensitively. I have wife and I also think my wife helped me so much in my life. I wonder if my wife is happy. I have many things I should appologize about. People who are in the same age group with me mihgt have same kind of emotion when they see this animation.
This animation gave me a hearache and it made me think about my life too.
Originally, this was only animated work without music. After it became sensetional, the band, Muse, seemed to decied to use this animation for their song's promotion video.
