This movie works
24 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I screened this movie to an audience of around 200 ten- and eleven-year-old school students. I suspect that for almost all of them it was the first subtitled film they had seen. Within ten minutes they were hooked,watching intently with no fidgeting or chatting. (And no - before you come out with the wisecrack: they were definitely NOT asleep!) The world which is portrayed is a mix of fascist state and mystic nature. As with many anime films what we are shown is a kind of parallel universe: there is violence in this film, and it is all caused by human beings.

The idea for the film comes from a story by C W Nicol, who was born in south Wales... about ten miles from where my audience of 200 students was watching the film. But you don't have to have that local connection to appreciate this gem.
