What was this?

I saw this movie at a preview screening. I came out feeling 'well, that was different and quite weird'. For a good portion of the film, the fact that the characters are tiny is irrelevant. If you like a film where you have to think about what you're seeing and find the nuances of meaning behind the story-line, you might like this. For those who thought this would be a bit of laugh, the laughs are few and far between. It felt like this film didn't know what it was. Was it a tool for warning about global warming and climate change? Was it trying to be a comedy? Was it trying to be a situation drama? I'm still not sure.
