Animation • PG-13 • 2002 • 1 hr 27 min
One of my favorites! The visuals of this movie are amazing. I recommend everyone to watch it.
Great atmosphere and story. Seems disjointed at first but all comes together really beautifully.
It has an unusual format in story telling, but that's not surprising since it's Satoshi Kon after all. It did the job. Kon fans will like it
Time, space, fiction, and reality keep stumbling over each other. All of them weaving together to create a unique and wonderful experience.
Another superb entry in Kon's tragically abbreviated body of work. Like the characters, you'll find yourself swept up in the story!
Stunning Animation and a story that blurs the lines of the protagonists memories. Emotionally honest and inspiring.
Even in the context of ordinary human life, animation has boundless potential that live action can't emulate. Exhibit A: Millennium Actress.
This movie is the biggest and greatest love letter to Japanese cinema. It is an immersive experience and I couldn't help but to cry with it.
All of Satoshi Kons movies are great, and I think this one gets overlooked a lot. Give a watch.
Incredibly moving. Another demonstration of just how spectacular Kon was
