Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garden of Words [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
It may just be a mediocre translation for the tile but there isn't THAT much dialogue...,ahem...,to speak of.
However....,the whole animation is based around rainy days and sitting in the park shelter and just enjoying the weather.
It concerens two strangers taking time off from what they're supposed to be doing.
'Irresponsible', I hear you say.Well.you'd be right.....,sort of.
Stick around to hear their reasons.That's what the film is about.It's like eavesdropping.
One thing I did notice was the repeated use of the same piece of animation,particularly the tree dipping into the water at the gardens.It's a short film too,and I wanted more,of course.
That's a mean critisism really,I just wanted to see more of the fantastic scenes that we know Makoto can create.
If that's why YOU are interested,then it doesn't disappoint.There are some brilliant sunsets,showers and medative moments.
One of my favourites is near the end of the film,when the relationship we see on the DVD cover,comes to....,well....,fruition,I 'spose.
It has a painfull twist in the tail/tale though,so be warned !
The extras on the DVD explain more and are definitely worth watching.
Is it one to add to your collection ? It sure is ! No doubt about it.
