After seeing the first few animated videos that accompanied the singles from Discovery on MTV etc I really hoped that Daft Punk would be able to complete their dream and release the whole film. This DVD does just that, and surpasses every expectation.
If you were ever a fan of Battle of The Planets, Ulysses 31 and their ilk then the animated content of Interstella 5555 will suprise and delight; that the musical input works perfectly with the unfolding storyline is a complementary joy. And any suspicions that the animation would be budget-constrained soon evaporate: Daft Punk chose one of Japan's best anime teams to work with and it shows. The characters are appealing, the backgrounds beautifully drawn and the intensely psychedelic flavour of the whole film is spot-on.
The storyline is also surprisingly easy to follow, despite the total lack of dialogue. Sure, there are some of the traditional 'what the?' moments that come with any anime movie, but these add to the fun. And the package as a whole works to remind you of how great Discovery is as an album and how great Japanese cartoons are too.
Well worth buying.

There are enough reviews here to convince anyone that Interstellar 5555 is an absoulute must, not just for die hard Daft Punk fans but for anyone willing to give it a chance. i watched it for the first time last night. i was incredibly drunk but it sobered me up because of its fantastic jap style animation and of course the genius soundtrack of Discovery. a previous reviewer described the plot as 'thin'. depending on your viewpoint, i believe this to be inaccurate. it tells the story of an alien rock band who enjoy the freedom of creativeness through their music. snatched from their home planet by an evil record producer from earth with the intent of packaging them in the name of the almighty dollar, the band are brainwashed on earth and disguised as humans. more like drones, they are thrust into fame and sapped for every penny they can produce. much the same as most manufactured bands today. Amyway it all works out in the end and they escape back to their home planet. i wouldnt label it thin rather than an audio and visual description of the general state of the music industry today. its about exploitation of tallent to make those who have none, wealthy.
its very fast paced and i loved every second. the Daft Punk boys are genius, sacraficing personal fame to put their music rather than themselves first. and this DVD is a reflection of that attitude. cant endorse it enough.
anyway, where did i put the alkaseltzer........

I'm a massive fan of the "Discovery" album's videos, and was impressed that they had a clear and immersive narrative flowing through them, whilst still being decent and watchable in their own right. So when i heard that daft punk had made the videos for every track on their album, i was absolutely amazed. here was something i had to buy!
Sitting back on the friday morning I got it, with the curtains drawn, i immersed myself in a world of music, other worlds and evil cults. The film was AMAZING, and although the narrative isn't something necessarily new, the marriage of such beautiful audio and visual is absolutely stunning.
As i purchased the special edition, i also recieved a copy of Daft Club, the remix album of Discovery, which although I already owned, was a pleasent suprise. This is excellent value, as anyone not owning the Daft Club CD will be doubly grateful. I suggest you check out the Cosmo Vitelli remix of "Face to Face", a new spin on an already classic track.
Overall, i'm finding it very difficult to put into words the sheer gorgeousness of the film. everything about it, from its audio brilliance to its colourful, exotic visuals, is just sublime. Even if it were 40 quid, it'd be a bloody bargain! Buy It!

Format: DVD
In its way a remarkable film, and a genuine one-off, which deserves to be better known amongst animation lovers. Co-director Leiji Matsumoto, who during his long career in anime has been associated in one capacity or another with such cheesy epics as Space Battleship Yamato, the Harlock Saga, Star Blazers & etc, worked with Daft Punk (a French two-man band specialising in electronic rock) on this unique feature. Deliberately recreating the extreme glam stylisation of the 1970's/early 80's Japanese animation style, albeit done with more fluidity and detail which modern day budgets and software allow, Matsumoto has married image and sound to hypnotic effect in a movie which in effect is both unique and unforgettable. A "digital love story" of a kidnapped technoband - who incidentally travel together in a Scooby-Do like 'Mystery Machine' as events unfold - and an evil music impresario (echoes of the obscure Toomorrow (1970) here - anyone seen that?). Despite some snipes at pop exploitation, there are no great depths here story-wise, although there are dark elements, such as the painful burial of a deceased major character. But the characterisation is not important, as it was not what the creators were after, instead preferring to leave the graphic designs and timings to unfold on their own account. What makes the film so great is the peculiar manga-music hybrid that results, as the stylised visual design and editing rhythms join with a contemporary soundtrack (the entire film is wordless outside of lyrics)in a way which is both culturally nostalgic as well as being strikingly modern, hypnotic even, in effect. The plastic surface which results entirely transcends the original pulp manga inspiration. In short it's a film which sounds naff but, somehow, works. As an achievement the result is miles ahead of the director's previous, briskly produced juvenelia and ought to be required viewing.
