Koji Yamamura's latest masterpiece!
14 July 2013 | by (Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

A short depressing animated film with poetic images, surrealistic atmosphere and a mesmerizingly beautiful soundtrack. It's about two parallel stories, the first one takes place in 1877 about the father of the motion picture Eadweard Muybridge and his invention (the Zoopraxiscope) which enabled him to photograph the famous running horse among his other famous photographic series, then Yamamura explores Muybridge's struggles in his personal life and marriage. The second story takes place in modern Tokyo about a mother raising up her daughter and how she grows up quickly and drifts away from her while time passes by. It's a race with time and whether we can make it go backwards or slow it or even stop it.

I was very excited to see this and it exceeded my expectation! I've seen most of Yamamura's works and he never disappoints me with his animations. The best I've seen for him are 'Kafuka: Inaka isha' and 'Mount Head', and this one is definitely up there with these two brilliant animations.
