Children Who Chase Lost Voices
Animation • PG • 2011 • 1 hr 56 min
The concept of being who u r meant to be and sometimes the crippling loneliness comes along with it is beautifully portrayed here by Shinkai
Incredibly heartfelt about the journey of life and death.
This one is just beautiful when it comes to drawings and it also has a very interesting plot.But in the end the movie is just really boring.
Slow and beautiful. Keeps your attention just enough and falls a little short.
This proves that you can put too much stuff in a single film and get a slow result that only answers half of the questions it raises.
Really slow to get started and really scattered once it does. Cool concept that needs more fleshing out.
It’s like a ghibli movie that went full retarded
Good movie, especially all the part in Agartha.
A true piece of art, the animation is amazing, the story interesting, 10/10 for sure
I definitely watched it in the cinema when it came out, but for the life of me can’t even remember what it was about
