Could be better
4 December 2000 | by blackhawk.scSee all my reviews

About the movie itself, it simply cannot compare to some of the more powerful films such as Nausicaa, Ninja Scroll, and Perfect Blue. The story's got a strong base with the environmental issue but couldn't capitalize unlike the films mentioned above. Sometimes Ran's expressions are over-exaggerated (not to mention reckless) and Ira always seemed kind yet defenceless, almost stereotypical of young women. I didn't know what the director was thinking but he failed to make Ran's father a large part of the movie by making him such a dull and sedated character. The animation however is great, especially on the DVD. Lots of detailing. The ending theme is a keeper. It's called "Tears and Rain" so go check that out. It's a 6 on my scale.
