Totally bittersweet but also stunning and meaningful
16 April 2010 | by (Japan/movied from NY) – See all my reviews

"Summer Days with Coo" is full of realism and one of the finest animated works which won the animation of the year.You will see in this beautiful movie how human beings who live in concrete jungle forgot sincerity to others. Coo may look like an alien to you but he and his summer days with one kind human family will remind you of your lost memories and bittersweet nostalgia. "Summer Days with Coo" even includes several social problems such as overreaction of mass media, bullying and invisible violence in our society.

Overall, "Summer Days with Coo" is very good movie , not a kind of only critically acclaimed movie.I recommend this to all the people who want serious and sincere movie works but this could be excellent for education.
