If I take this brickfilm and compare it to any other brickfilm, this would probably stand out. But next to the other two you made, it's kind of a let down.
One could argue that I should take the video for what it is instead of comparing it with other products, but in this case I think that "what it is" comprehends the other films of the series. Yes, the animation is fantastic and the cinematography is quite beautiful, in your films there's always something unique. Technically, it is impeccable.
It couldn't engage me, though. What I mostly had problems with is the way situations are handled here: too much headed towards silliness, while having a love story in it should involve some tenderness too,

at least enough of it so that the twist at the end comes with some emotion, not only for Henry, but for the viewer too.
It's not that it's wrong not to have it, but here, it looked like you were afraid to go in that area: the gags had too much screen time (which didn't make them look like gags anymore), slowing down the pace, while if they'd been shorter it would've been funnier, and would've left more space to the actual movie.
Again, if I take each single aspect of the movie, there's nothing that wouldn't work, even the story and the direction: it is a funny story to tell, after all, and the direction exploits these things. But put together it is less than the sum of its parts.
So, this time I couldn't care enough. I'm probably the only one, everyone will love it, and they'll be right, it will be me who's missing the point. But Droit d'Auteurs was a masterpiece, something that was from another world, that felt every emotion the characters experienced, made me laugh and worry about, that showed me what great things could be achieved with this medium.
I just expected the same level of intensity in this one.
