Storyline

In the not too distant future androids have come into common usage. Taking the androids for granted, humans treat them as if they were common everyday tools, while on the other hand, some people empathize with androids due to their human-like appearance (save for a digital ring floating above their heads). This has become a social problem and these people are frowned upon as a result. Rikuo, one who has taken androids for granted for his entire life, one day discovers that Sammy, his home android, has been acting strangely and finds a strange phrase recorded in her activity log. He, along with his friend Masaki, traces Sammy's footsteps and come upon an unusual café. Written by ...M@x...

Deep probe into human dirty soul
1 September 2013 | by magy-4See all my reviews

Well... there is many things in one simple movie. But Japanese anime are such that - deep in psychology, ethic, show parts of our behavior we won't see... From one point I can say, this movie is like prophecy. We, humans, WILL DO act and treat to our future androids and robots exactly in way, we see in this movie. Heartless, selfish, careless, most of us will consider them as "machine, what have to serve me/obey my commands". Nothing more. But there will be many another people, who make strong relationship with their "machine" - and call it whatever you want. For child is very easy to bond tightly with his/her babysitter, no matter if it's made from flesh or wires... And those people will love their "machines" more than love humans, some of them will depend on them very much, sometimes too much. And that become a thorn in flesh of heartless people, people who stuck in opinion "it's only machine and it's not deserve to be loved". As I note in summary, this movie is amazing probe into our souls, reveal our wants, feelings, dreams, nightmares or worse parts of our personality. Don't be deluded with easygoing animation/drawing. Movie is very hard to understand and once you understand message and all things what include, you'll love it. Love it so much, you probably start looking some prop from movie on internet or ebay. Such a scarf or coffee pot with name "Are you enjoying..." Right? ;) Because that's the moment you understand message and agree with that message, and you one of those people, full of love to things WITH SOUL, no matter if they are made from flesh or wires. For those, who want to know, what message is and didn't found it yet - watch movie again. And again. Good Luck! :)
