That was cool. The film was totally a throw back to the days of Noir. Although now because of computer animation and better camera technology and film manipulation a little bit of the art in Noir is lost. On the upside however it does allow the film maker to do some INSANE stuff. That being said, I really liked this. Noir was always a favorite of mine and this was excellently done in my opinion. I honestly wish it was longer or a fifteen minute weekly episodic deal, so more time could be taken with one story and the bit at the end, (not trying to spoil) could have been dragged out a bit more in another fifteen minute episode. It was gritty and visceral and props for bring it up.

It was actually very American. The visual style was deliberately modeled on "Sin City" which, as fizzle points out, was Frank Miller's homage to film noir, an American style of film.
