4.0 out of 5 stars Anime-ted Bliss!, 10 Dec. 2003
This review is from: Interstella 5555 [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
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.
