Now this animated movie is more than complex. And I'm not talking only about the different time lines this has. Obviously one of the things this is trying to convey, is that you can't leave the past just laying there. Forgetting about it, just is not an option. If you believe the movie, there is always a connection. A weird one, but there is one and I'm sure many believe that too.

Even if you don't believe it, the visual style will grab your attention. It might wear off though after a while and might not keep you hooked until the end. Whatever the case, you have to like your movies to be a bit different and have a science fiction touch to them. If that is the case you will really like it ... if not, even the 6 I gave it, will sound too much in your eyes ...
