The exact location of the Harlocks' Arcadia (as a birthplace) is a source of discussion and debate among fans. To begin with, the name Harlock is considered to be of Prussian origin; Harlock II states his ancestral birthplace is Heiligenstadt, a German/Austrian area. Whatever the case, the Arcadia of Harlock's youth is assumed to be located in Europe. See more »
[During World War I, a pilot is seen flying a biplane through a mountain range amidst a fierce thunderstorm]
Phantom F. Harlock I:
My name is Phantom F. Harlock. At that time, I was flying amidst rolling thunder from Port Moresby, traversing New Guinea, heading for Rabaul, on New Britain Island.

First of all it has to be said that i saw the movie in Italian language, so maybe the translation didn't help.
The movie jumps from a scene to another without any sense, the "deus ex machina" director solves EVERY problem the characters may have: they must find someone? next scene somehow they meet him/her/them.
They look for someone in a planet and magically they land right next to them. And this happens for EVERYTHING and anyone looking for someone/something.
The story itself has many holes, some of them very disappointing, the dialogs are sometimes absurd: "it's impossible to find any weapons!" (said by the captain 20 seconds after punching an enemy soldier and taking his rifle). The characters are absolutely flat and do not evolve : the story adds nothing to the characters development: they start and end exactly the same characters like nothing happened.
The appearing of Mr Bird is somehow ridiculous. This is a sad stain on my memory of the Captain.
