Powerful Anime - fantastic Scenery and Music
18 January 2006 | by spam-1222See all my reviews

If you have watched "Prinzess Mononoke" and if you have liked the scenery of it, you will surely like this series. From the beginning I was packed by the absolutely fantastic pictures (not only the backgrounds but also the movements of the "camera"). Sometimes one has the feeling that it has been created under the influence of LSD or so, although the plot is not in that direction and the movie has a clear thread. Everyone who is interested in environmental questions will be moved by what the movie shows in almost unlimited points of view. The idea that you become a part of what you eat is shown in a fascinating way: Arjuna trying to eat a meal consisting of grains polluted by insecticides and having flashes of insight so strong that the cannot eat it made me think a lot. What I also find great: It's not dividing the world in good and bad rather it shows that sometime we fight against things because we just think that they are bad. When Chris asks Arjuna "Why do you want to kill it?" first one does not really understand this question, but as the movie unfolds it's ideas, you realize that you yourself have fallen into the same trap of strange thinking... I suggest to watch the I think total 13 parts in three goes, each 1 1/2 hours otherwise you might get hit too hard.
