If cherry petals would fall by 5 centimeters per second, it would take them one minute to fall from a 3 meter high tree. Obviously they fall around ten times faster, even when pictured in the movie. See more »
This movie is basically three separate chapters, each of them showing different degrees of separation between two people.
throughout the movie you'll see one of the best animation scenes in history. Its superb!!, images are incredibly neat and well done. In this department I would give the movie an 11 out of ten.
first chapter is absolutely flawless, its amazing, one of the best pieces of animation I've ever seen, maybe even the best. You are captivated by the characters amazingly fast, its fantastic. another 11 out of ten.
Second chapter is also very good but.. the first chapter is so perfect that you don't think much of the second one.
last chapter is good. actually it is PERFECT, it allows the movie to make its point. in other words, it ends the way it has to. I did not give this chapter a 10 ONLY because it made me really sad ( I don't think I'm spoiling anything by saying this). I thought it was going to end in a completely different way.
Anyway, I recommend this movie a lot, just the animation and the first chapter makes it worth it. If you like the ending you could probably rank it as a 9.5 or ten.
