Quotes

Yukito Kunisaki: If you know where you've come from, and you know where you're headed, then you are not on a true journey. When you're on a true journey, you've long forgotten why you left in the first place, and you've no idea where you're supposed to go. At least that's what I believe, now that I've been on the road so long.

Amazing
29 January 2012 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Didn't watch the series so, I have no idea what is what, but my GOD the motion picture was amazing. I should have gotten some tissues with me because it's actually quite moving.

Since it's an alternate retelling of the story which you see in the series, I guess I can go about and discuss certain points. The movie goes back and forth between two different tales which are beautifully interwoven together. You see some scenes of the old story and then you see the same thing repeat in the main story but obviously it's a bit different.

It really is heart moving story, the ending is indeed a bit rushed and it takes time to understand what is what but even with limited knowledge of what is going around, it's still quite powerful.

I can't recall any other Anime movie which was so simple yet so beautiful in its own way. The music was simply elegant (I am currently looking for the OST). But I am impressed by the work, it could have been much better honestly but even in this form it's still worth watching.
