This film was incredible.
One of the best anime films I have ever seen.
It is a retelling of the oldest Japanese folk tale 'The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter'.
Just finished it.
Really touching, I didn't expect that much out of it, a really nice surprise.
The art fits well, beautiful by it's simplicity and remind of old Japanese paintings.
I had a lump in my throat during some scenes.
How to tell if someone is casual or not
If they suck this films dick, they're casual.
If they don't, they aren't.
This film is ONLY impressive to low power level faggots who don't know shit.
Yeah kyoani drop 50 million dollars on all their seasonal output. If you can't perceive how this is in a whole different league to that you don't really have a clue what you are talking about.
>the spirits from Moon are not rabbits
Fire whoever did that scene..
OK, this film was weird, had some really good parts, I really liked the ending and some part/scenes during the movie, but some other just seems really not well done in 'camera movement' and story (characterization) . The soundtracks is amazing, something to expect from Hiashi.
I will say 4/5
>barely holding back tears at the end
>then the children start singing
Way to ruin an emotionally impacting ending, Takahata. Saved me from embarrassment at the movie theater though, so I guess that's a plus.
It was far from being a great film. It suffered from an outdated story. The "I get rich, but I'm unhappy because I can't be with my poor friends anymore who, incidentally, are the only good persons on heart, while rich people are bad" kind of story has been overdone to death. It even begs the question to how hypocritical it is, when her "friends" are ruffians who would cheat on their wives in a heartbeat.
