Excellent pictures, jumping storyline
15 September 2004 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

I am no big expert of anime, just watch it when feel like that, so this is a "lay person's comments" on The Five Star Stories.

The Five Stars are stars in a far away galaxy in the future, where fairytale conditions rule. The story is about Fatimas, artificially made androids. They are similar to humans in looks, have feelings and thinking, but they are still artificial and made to be under the control of a human Master, that they choose at the Preview. Details are revealed only drop by drop on Fatimas, which is part of the magic of the film - I keep it for you to get surprised. Let's say that the story of main character, Sopp and the Fatima, Lochesis, is between romantic and ironic.

The images, the music and the overall atmosphere of the movie is just excellent. It brought me back to times when I was a small kid and read fairy tales. Everyone is either good or evil, beautiful or ugly, weak or powerful. The storyline however jumps many times a big step ahead or back to the past and then it was quite hard for me to keep track of what's really happening, what is what and who is who. Maybe if I had read the comic series, I would have been familiar with all this.

I can give 7 out of 10, as the drawings, the colors, the pictures are excellent, but the story does not flow as it should. You get a nice 65 minutes, if you find this movie - it's not easy!
