Short, but still full of Miyazaki's magic
3 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

6 1/2 minutes. That's a record for Miyazaki. But despite its length and the fact that not one word was spoken during its entire duration, this short music film still managed to show the magic that's seen in all of Hayao Miyazaki's feature-length films.

This short film is accompanied by a song of Chage and Aska's. When I think of a film about two policemen teaming up to help give freedom to a girl with wings, my choice of music would have been very different from what was given. But it worked! The music went great with Miyazaki's animation and the storyline itself.

Boy, if this was turned into a real feature-length film, how great would that be? Lots of questions would be answered and we'd have a better background on our characters and the story itself. But I guess the beauty of this film comes from the fact that it still managed to deliver a whole set of emotions even if it was just under 7 minutes.

Some may find that their understanding of the film changes after a succeeding viewing, and I think they're right. This film definitely deserves more than one viewing, as to better understand the concept of the film.
